Exclusive #Apollo8 by Philip Gibson
What if there had been social media during the Apollo 8 mission to the Moon in 1968?
This mission would be the longest and most perilous journey ever attempted by man, and this account will put you believably back inside those six tense and dramatic days in 1968. It is the story of the first manned mission to the Moon told in the form of today’s social media, allowing us to witness the unfolding drama of the mission as if we were following it in real time and as if the participants and observers were sharing their thoughts and actions with us directly.
In December 1968, so much remained unknown.
Would the first manned launch of the massive Saturn V rocket lift off and successfully and deliver three astronauts into Earth orbit? Would humans be able to survive passing through the Van Allen belts of radiation between the Earth and the Moon? What would happen when the astronauts passed around the far side of the Moon out of contact with Earth? Would the single engine needed to boost the spacecraft out of lunar orbit and on a course back to Earth fire as hoped? Would the first nighttime recovery of a spacecraft from the Pacific Ocean be successful?
If the Apollo 8 mission was to be successful, the astronauts on board would become the first humans to travel so incredibly far and so incredibly fast. They would be the first to leave the Earth’s sphere of influence and the first to see the whole planet Earth from space. They would be the first to orbit the Moon, first to set eyes on the far side of the Moon and the first humans to witness the spectacular Earthrise over the lunar landscape.
The narrative of this account is based on actual astronaut recollections, NASA transcripts of the fascinating continual communications with the astronauts, broadcasts of the main TV networks covering the mission and the thoughts of many expert and laypeople observers. There is an extensive list of major sources at the end of the book.
Lost Identity by Carter Blake
A gripping crime thriller with a killer twist.
Detective Alex Kane is always looking to the future, until a threat from the past resurfaces.
When Alex Kane’s father died, it was ruled a simple heart attack. The stress of years on the Pittsburgh PD narcotics beat had finally caught up with him. But Alex knew better. His father had been murdered.
Years later, Alex is now a detective himself and he gets an opportunity to join a task force going after the very crew that killed his father. But the intersection of cops and criminals is sometimes more complicated than it appears and there are some things that are better left in the past. Can Alex hold on to his integrity when everything he thought he could trust starts to crumble? Will keeping true to himself cost him his life?
