No Requiem for the Space Age

The Apollo Moon Landings and American Culture

Matthew D. Tribbe

  • Rather than focusing on the history of the space program, this book examines American culture in the 1960s and 70s through the lens of the Apollo moon landings
  • Explains why even as early the first moon landing, NASA was already facing a society that was growing indifferent (and even hostile) to its missions
  • Uses movies, novels, rock albums, religious tracts, and other cultural products to gauge reactions to the Apollo moon landings in popular culture
