For All Humankind: The Untold Stories of How the Moon Landing Inspired the World

July 20, 1969. Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin left humanity’s first footprints on the Moon.

The plaque they left behind reads, “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon, July 1969, A.D. We came in peace for all mankind.” But was the Apollo 11 moon landing mission really a global endeavor? How did people outside the United States view these “rocket men”?

Against the political backdrop of the Cold War between the US and the Soviet Union, was it, indeed, “For all mankind”? Dr. Tanya Harrison has talked to individuals from a variety of locations outside the United States, to see how this event touched the lives of people across the world.

Enthusiasts of space travel, the Apollo missions, and the moon landings will love this book. These previously untold stories reveal the impact of the moon landings around the globe, and what having a “man on the moon” meant to the international community.

In this exciting new book, For All Humankind, readers will:

• Get to read interviews with eight non-Americans to get their perspectives
• Be inspired by their memories of the event as they saw it
• Have a unique opportunity to learn more about one of the most historic events in human history

If you liked A Man on the Moon, Rocket Men and First Man, you will love this insightful book.

Over the past decade, author Dr. Tanya Harrison has worked in mission operations for NASA’s Curiosity and Opportunity rovers and the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, and has done research focusing on the planet’s surface geology. She holds a PhD in Geology with a Specialization in Planetary Science and Exploration from the University of Western Ontario, Canada.

Dr. Danny Bednar is a geographer of space, with an interest in how satellites are helping in the fight against climate change. Danny has worked on policy programs and rover-training missions with the Canadian Space Agency and has taught Space Exploration at Western University in Canada since 2012.

|On July 20, 1969, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin left humanity’s first footprints on the Moon. Along with bootprints, they left a plaque: “Here men from the planet Earth first set foot upon the Moon, July 1969, A. D. We came in peace for all mankind.” While this endeavor was driven by a Cold War between the United States and the Soviet Union, its impact was felt around the world.
