IN this extraordinary book, Andrew Smith rigorously researched the Apollo Moon Programme, and those who were involved.

Over a three-year period, 12 men made the journey to the moon, and all of them were indelibly marked by the experience. Of those astronauts, nine survive, and in the future, there will be no one to relate to us what it is like to look back at the Earth from the moon.

In Moondust, Smith sets out to track down and interview the remaining 'moonwalkers' to learn how their lives, and indeed ours, were changed by this adventure for ever.
