No Requiem for the Space Age

The Apollo Moon Landings in American Culture

Matthew D. Tribbe

  • Rather than focusing on a history of the space program, this book examines American culture in the 1960s and 70s through the lens of the Apollo moon landings.
  • Argues that from the time of the first moon landing, NASA was already facing a society that was indifferent to or disparaged its missions.
  • Uses movies, TV, novels, and other cultural products in examining reactions to the Apollo moon landings in popular culture.
