Paolo Ulivi provides a well-paced, rapidly moving, balanced, even-handed account of lunar exploration as a popular history. He covers the unmanned programmes, e.g. Ranger, and other American probes in the late 50s and in the later chapters he looks at recent lunar exploration and future plans for the same. Its a book that will be perfect for an enthusiast or someone coming to the story for the first time, as it does not include excessive technical depth. Uniquely drawing on recently declassified documents, detail of Chinese lunar exploration projects is provided, as well as nuclear lunar weapons of the 50s developed by the super powers, Soviet Russia and the United States.

    Un resoconto cronologico completo, dettagliato e accurato di tutte le missioni spaziali automatiche e con equipaggio verso la Luna, dalle prime idee all'inizio del XX secolo fino alla pubblicazione del libro nel 2004. Di ogni missione riporta informazioni ingegneristiche, la cronaca degli eventi e i risultati scientifici.

    NB - Per dovere di trasparenza: l'autore principale, Paolo Ulivi, è un mio amico.
