Internationally bestselling astronaut Chris Hadfield is back with an exceptional Cold War thriller from the dark heart of the Space Race.
1973: a final, top-secret mission to the Moon. Three astronauts in a tiny module. 250 million miles from home. 250 million miles from help.
As Russian and American crews sprint for a secret bounty hidden away on the lunar surface, old rivalries blossom and the political stakes are stretched to breaking point back on Earth. Houston flight controller Kazimieras ‘Kaz’ Zemeckis must do all he can to keep the NASA crew together, while staying one step ahead of his Soviet rivals.
But not everyone on board Apollo 18 is quite who they appear to be.
Join Chris in conversation for this online event, as he explores the inspiration behind his new novel. Experience the fierce G-forces of launch, the frozen loneliness of Space and the fear of holding on to the outside of a spacecraft orbiting the Earth at 17,000 miles per hour, as told by a former Commander of the International Space Station who has done all of those things in real life.
Strap in and count down for the ride of a lifetime with one of the most seasoned and accomplished astronauts in the world.
‘It’s a very rare book that combines so many things I love, from taut suspense and highly realistic action, to the golden age of space exploration. I couldn’t put it down.’ James Cameron, director of Avatar and Titanic
‘Commander Hadfield takes us on an exciting journey into an alternate past. And who better to write about astronauts than an astronaut himself!’ Andy Weir, author of The Martian
