Description

Award-winning author Don Brown explores the history of rocket building in this installment of the Big Ideas That Changed the World series

"That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong said those iconic words when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. But it wasn't just one man who got us to the moon--there was a whole team of people, plus centuries of discoveries and technologies that came before, that made it possible. From ancient Chinese rockets to the first steps on the moon, Rocket to the Moon! reveals which "bombs bursting in air" inspired the writer of "The Star-Spangled Banner," why the Russians wanted to launch a dog into Earth's atmosphere, and how exactly astronauts are able to go to the bathroom while in a rocket far off in space!

Big Ideas That Changed the World is a graphic novel series that celebrates the hard-won succession of ideas that ultimately changed the world. Humor, drama, and art unite to tell the story of events, discoveries, and ingenuity over time that led humans to come up with a big idea and then make it come true.
