Rocket Men tells the thrilling story of this historic mission through the eyes of its remarkable crew, three men who had the admiration and support of the entire astronaut corps.” — Joe Engle, X Test Pilot, NASA Astronaut, and Space Shuttle Commander. Directed by Dexter Fletcher. With Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard. A musical fantasy about the fantastical human story of Elton John's breakthrough years. 10/2/ · The Rocket Men did it again at Pennsylvania’s Williams Grove Speedway and at Devil’s Bowl Speedway in Dallas in the following weeks with a pair of double-win weekends that put Rispoli solidly in the points lead – and made him the favorite to take the Production Twins championship. And for a team assembled from scratch in the off. “Rocket Men is close-to-the-bone adventure-telling on a par with Alfred Lansing’s Endurance and Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air. It’s as close to a movie as writing gets.”—Mary Roach, The Washington Post “Kurson tells the behind-the-scenes story of Rocket Men with the pace of a thriller and the sensibility of a screenwriter With his focus on the astronauts’ young families, Kurson holds readers rapt to the /5().
But when Terry [Vance] began selling factory-spec XGs, we figured that was the best way forward for This AFT season has been like no other, of course, with Covid forcing a massive schedule tweak…eight double-header weekends featuring just two Short Tracks two for Singles, one for Twins , four Miles, no TTs and the rest Half-Miles.
Regardless of whether the Mile- and Half-Mile-weighted schedule favored the XG or not, Team Latus came out of the gate swinging, Rispoli and company wanting the paddock and the racing world to know that his four podiums last year were no fluke — and that Team Latus was a genuine contender for the Production Twins title.
At what may have been the last Indy Mile ever the track scheduled to be redone for horse-racing only Rispoli recorded his first National win in Production Twins with a crushing, second runaway victory on night number two, though there was drama aplenty leading up to it.
First, the team blew up one of its two engines during testing in the days before the race. Rispoli recorded another runner-up on Friday night at Indy, but his dominating performance on Saturday night did more than put him on the top step of the podium for the first time in more than a decade — it triggered a protest by the Ryan Varnes team.
So I think some were thinking we doped the tire or something, and were keeping it warm for that reason. The exhaust was ricocheting off the walls and I thought there were bikes right on my ass, so I kept pushing.
The protest was a bit silly. I teased Varnes afterward, asking him if he had an extra thou on him for beer money. The Springfield Miles over Labor Day weekend were exciting as well, but for different reasons.
Rispoli ran fast on Saturday but faded a bit at the end to finish fifth, with Varnes snagging his first-ever Mile win. Prior to a backmarker crash and subsequent red flag with just four laps remaining, the group of eight put on a white-knuckle display, with guys running high, low and in the middle, the riders trading places constantly.
On the restart, Rispoli followed for a few laps and then jammed his way to the front on the final lap, leading out of turn four with enough of a gap to grab the win.
I fired it up the inside of turns three and four, was able to get a little gap, and tucked in for dear life! Just gotta continue to take it race by race, not look too far ahead, and do what we do.
The space race had started, and with Sputnik and the Russian satellite orbiting Laika around the earth, all believed Russia was in the lead. Apollo 8 proved this to be wrong.
I have drawn off a star for the extreme nationalistic and patriotic tone of the book. I do not share such views. Back in the s, I was one of the dissenters.
The astronauts and two of the three wives were interviewed. Frank Borman and James Lovell, both eighty-seven years of age, and William Anders, eighty-three years of age, were fully cogent and very willing to speak with the author.
Chris Kraft, ninety-one years of age, the head officer of the mission, was interviewed too. The web-based flight journal of Apollo 8 as well as other sources material are sited.
Otherwise it is Ray Porter who narrates the audiobook. Every word he speaks is clear and distinct. The pacing is perfect. He gives and absolutely excellent narration.
A rating of a whopping five stars is what I have given the audiobook narration. Yep, this was definitely worth reading, despite my hesitation.

How is it even possible to make a book about space that I don't love? If you're quoting someone or deliberately reflecting the patterns of speech of your subjects think Tom Wolfe in The Right Stuff that's one thing.
If you're reaching for the easiest phrase in the phrasebook, that's This was definitely not the former. Every line of this book felt uniform in tone and pattern.
This How is it even possible to make a book about space that I don't love? This doesn't ever happen in real life, and I always notice when I'm fifty or a hundred pages into a book and can't even remember which character said which line in a dialogue because they all sound identical and have done so throughout.
This is ostensibly a book documenting actual things which happened. In space. And yet I was about a quarter of the way in before I found the first evidence of research quotation marks, block quotes, footnotes, asterisks, end-note citations, lines like "in early interviews, [x] was prone to saying [y]".
And there were only a handful of moments throughout this book's hundreds of collective pages when Kurson made reference to documentation.
I literally had no clue that this book was based on interviews until I read the author's note at the very end of the book.
I received an early copy, so there were no appendices or indices or end matter other than that note It won't ever be enough to salvage the book from its lack of internal cues throughout.
And it bothers me that Kurson adopted a journalist's supposedly objective "reporting" voice for conveying the internal feelings of people who have long since died and never recorded their feelings about these events in public.
And just like the dialogue, these italicized internal thoughts felt uniform. They felt like Kurson's voice. It felt like a lie every time.
And I really think there probably is something fascinating about her, but her development of Alzheimer's means that she was not able to contribute her own thoughts and feelings to this book.
Which means that every line and thought attributed to her struck me as As projections of Kurson's own thoughts and feelings. I honestly can't remember a single evocative image from this book.
It consists of hundreds of pages of Kurson telling his readers that things happened If you're not going to saturate your book with research or are going to base it entirely upon personal interviews conveyed anecdotally and without confirmation and you're not going to try and impress upon your readers the experience of the moment, what's left?
You're not a McCullough or a Wolfe, obviously. If I'd had a hand in editing this book, I would have recommended trimming the summarizing waaaaay back and finding a compelling through-line.
This book has no narrative heart. I read sections of this book aloud to my roomies while at a graduate course intensive. View 2 comments.
This is an amazing story, made even more amazing by Ray Porter's excellent narration. I can't help but feel that, much like when this tale took place, we need this kind of patriotic, inspiring story to get us through this tough time.
Sorry to get political. These men were patriots, they were brave and they were Americans. It was a pleasure to learn more about them.
Libraries RULE! Comprehensive story, but I think I should have had a paper copy. The audio didnt keep my attention. View 1 comment. Jan 24, Dave rated it it was amazing Shelves: netgalley-books , read-have.
Kurson's incredible book "Rocket Men" tells one of the greatest stories of adventure in the modern age, a story that captivated not just the nation, but the entire world.
It's the story of the race to the moon. If you loved The Right Stuff and Apollo 13, you'll love this book. After the Soviets launched Sputnik, the space race had begun and, although John Kennedy set getting to the moon within ten years as a goal, it almost didn't happen.
Growing up, we all knew the names of the three astronauts Kurson's incredible book "Rocket Men" tells one of the greatest stories of adventure in the modern age, a story that captivated not just the nation, but the entire world.
Growing up, we all knew the names of the three astronauts who actually landed on the moon, but the story of Apollo 8, the rocket that first made it to the moon is a far more incredible story, particularly given how quickly the launch came together without the usual testing.
Kurson takes on a journey with Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders, to the moon and back, step by breathtaking step. You can feel the world's emotions as the countdown commences, as each rocket stage breaks off, as the astronauts disappear in the dark side of the moon, and as they re-enter the earth's atmosphere and splash into the Pacific.
It's also set appropriately in historical perspective with the Cold War space race, the war in Vietnam, the riots in the cities, and in as Dr King and Robert Kennedy were brutally cut down, taking with them so much of the hopes and dreams of the nation.
It took a Christmas miracle in the form of Apollo 8 to give the country hope and optimism again.
Kurson also gives us the background history of each of these astronauts, where they grew up, how they met their wives, how they dreamed of being test pilots and eventually chosen to be the second group of astronauts, following the Gemini program.
It's amazing that this journey to the moon could be done with the simple technology of the day and the computers they had then. Yet, the scientist' calculations were spot on.
This book is do well-written and do fascinating that it was a joy to read. Thank you to Random House for providing a copy for review.

What I don't remember is how the year ended with the first manned trip to the moon on Apollo 8, set to launch Christmas day.
One man even told NASA they dare not launch on Christmas, because it was sure to fail, kill everyone, and ruin the holiday for the entire country from that day forward.
But the flight succeeded. Succeeded in ways one couldn't imagine at - A blast from the past. Succeeded in ways one couldn't imagine at the time, and for which credit is seldom given.
It gave the country a blast of just what it needed at that time -- Spirit? Unity, I think. Another thing I cannot remember are the names of which astronauts went with which Apollo mission.
I am horrible with names. And numbers. Apollo 11 and 13 stand out but only because they are in the news so often. A thankfully brief history was given, and then on to the exciting stuff, off to orbit the moon and witness the dark side.
Some male acquaintances will find the descriptions of getting sick in a spaceship --where vomit and diarrhea become floating projectiles -- quite amusing.
Well, so did I! And I enjoyed the suspense each time the spaceship came to a new phase in its journey, always with a question about whether it would function as designed, or fail.
And the human faces put on the three astronauts as they made mistakes and at times struggled with their choices that put family second to career.
Narrator Ray Porter has a very nice voice and was able to make his reading sound conversational and to keep me interested even in the science parts.
In the lighter moments, I could have sworn I was listening to a snarky Tom Hanks, which is the highest of compliments!
This is an amazing book. I believe that the Apollo 11 story has really overshadowed this story. The author does a wonderful job of introducing us to the men who oversaw and flew this mission.
He also really put the mission into perspective for the country. This is a great audiobook. Aug 20, Scott rated it it was amazing. Whether it was the surprise Tet Offensive, the capture of the USS Pueblo, the riots in the streets of Chicago during the DNC, or the double-tragedy of the Martin Luther King and Bobby Kennedy assassinations, many headline news stories were often casting a fairly bleak view for the country.
The book also places an emphasis on the astronauts' families during the mission. From The Washington Post :.
The book includes chapters dedicated to each astronaut, the Space Race itself, and background and chronological progress of the mission including critical maneuvers and mission setbacks.
The book reached 7 on the New York Times bestseller list and has received positive reviews from critics. The film rights to Rocket Men were secured by Makeready prior to the book's publication.
With its back against the wall, NASA made an almost unimaginable leap: It would scrap its usual methodical approach and risk everything on a sudden launch, sending the first men in history to the Moon—in just four months.
And it would all happen at Christmas. In this real-life thriller, Kurson reveals the epic dangers involved, and the singular bravery it took, for mankind to leave Earth for the first time—and to arrive at a new world.
A gripping book. Fans of explorers and adventurers will enjoy this vibrant, accessible history. Download as PDF Printable version.
