“With this book, Lukas wants to give you a different approach to this incredible story through the destiny of our small group of moonwalkers. This is an original way to explain our story by emphasizing the human aspect of the Apollo program. With great and accurate details, he gives you an insight about the men behind this success. This book is funny, authentic, and educational.”

Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 Astronaut

“It is important to preserve their memories of mankind’s greatest engineering event. Lukas Viglietti has contributed to that in his excellent new book.”

David Chudwin, Book Author and Space Expert

Anyone interested in our lunar program will find insights and observations not found anywhere else. Instead of the nuts and bolts, the reader will realize and appreciate that these astronauts, while being great pilots and specialists; they also reveal their humanity. They’re fallible and make mistakes but know how to overcome any adversity. A great read.

Description

Between 1969 and 1972, twelve people walked on the surface of the Moon. Twelve others flew over its barren and majestic surface. They were the sons of workers, farmers, soldiers and businessmen. They thought anything was possible―and they proved this to the entire world.

For 20 years, Lukas Viglietti, an airline pilot and captain, has been fascinated by the conquest of the astronauts who went to space during his childhood. He has recorded their testimonies and since becoming their friend and confidant, he now offers an exclusive and unprecedented insight into their adventures.

In APOLLO CONFIDENTIAL, adults and children alike experience the all-inspiring accounts of:

  • steely-eyed test pilots
  • sensitive painters and poets
  • hard-living bad boys
  • thoughtful, studious scientists

The only thing they had in common was they all saw the view of the beautiful home planet from a quarter of a million miles away, an oasis of life compared to the stark and lifeless, alien moon. In APOLLO CONFIDENTIAL, Lukas Viglietti recounts what people from the history books―people such as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin―were like in person.
