Talking Apollo moonwalkers with author Andrew Smith

In the July podcast, BBC Sky at Night Magazine news editor Elizabeth Pearson speaks to author Andrew Smith, who tracked down the Apollo astronauts for his book Moon Dust.

In this month’s podcast we talk to Andrew Smith, author of Moon Dust, a book about the lives of the Apollo astronauts.


In the early 2000s, Smith hunted down and talked with all nine living moon walkers.


As the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11 approaches we talk to him about what it was like to talk to these lunar explorers.
