summary Carrying the Fire An Astronaut's Journeys

review Carrying the Fire An Astronaut's Journeys 103 read ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB º Michael Collins Michael Collins º 3 free download Reissued with a new preface by the author on the fiftieth anniversary of the Apollo 11 journey to the moonThe years that have passed since Neil Armstrong Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins piloted the Apollo 11 spacecraft to the moon in July 1969 have done nothing to alter the fu. This is probably the best non fictional book I ve ever read On nearly five hundred elated honest vivid and detail filled pages Michael Collins wraps up his brilliant career as a USAF test pilot engineer and NASA astronaut on both the Gemini 10 and Apollo 11 missions Being very humble Collins confesses that he thinks he never possessed extreme talent or expertise in any of the necessary fields of becoming an astronaut I m sure he did though and that his career was rather an excellent throw of the dice having a lot of luck throughout two decades even when unfortunate occasions came his way like spinal surgery just before his designated first flight with Apollo 9 shifting him to Apollo 11 The greatest parts are when the reader is taken aboard his two space flights on Gemini 10 in 1966 including a difficult EVA and orbital docking and eventually on humanity s biggest stunt in history the 1969 Apollo 11 mission to the Moon where Collins piloted the commandservice module Columbia solo orbiting while Aldrin and Armstrong touched down on the surface with Eagle Collins shows his excellent command of bringing down those events to paper and by including both technical details like orbital mechanics and the depth of emotions he was going through thus making the book a fascinating and precious read The author also sheds light on the philosophical side of humanity s space exploration including many pages of his own thoughts about the world in 1974 back when he wrote the book Many of those thoughts and gentle warnings about fossil fuels and human waste have become a reality and the book is as relevant today as it has ever been Highly readable a classic for both the technically interested and anyone looking for pure inspiration to achieve in life Collins honesty throughout the book is what makes it so remarkable One of my favourite passages is within the closing chapter of the book It is perhaps a pity that my eyes have seen than my brain has been able to assimilate or evaluate but like the Druids of Stonehenge I have attempted to bring order out of what I have observed even if I have not understood it fully

Out of the several NASA related books I ve read this was my favorite It was written in 1974 so the subject matter of space flight was a lot fresher on Collins s mind compared to a lot of NASA biographies that were written in the 2000s I think that gives the book a lively feel than other biographies since the Apollo program had just wound down and he could still recall things vividly And Collins wrote it without a ghostwriter which is pretty impressive since his writing is very good He s also surprisingly funny He gives a lot of insight into the personalities of the other astronauts and he isn t shy about giving his opinions about them I knew next to nothing about Collins other than the obvious things before reading this but it s written so well that I now have a better grasp on his personality and experiences than I do for any other astronaut or any other historical figure for that matter I give it five waning gibbous moons out of five
