For some reason this feels like a good weekend to write something related to my interest in the Apollo space programme.

One of the books I read on holiday this year was Moon Dust by Andrew Smith which tries approaches the Apollo history from an unusual angle.

I really enjoyed both the writing and the material that was unearthed about these men. Not wanting to spoil too much of the book, I will just highlight I found the following points particularly interesting.
