"The next best thing to landing on the Moon."-Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 astronaut "Your first three-dimensional look at the Moon will astound you. So will your next few thousand. But while you're at it, read what Dr. Bell has to say. His insights will knock your moon-boots off."--Bill Nye, Science Guy(R) and vice president of The Planetary Society "Jim Bell once again brings a familiar neighbor down to Earth. But he also explores our romance with the Moon, not only as a perennial source of lore, but also as an object of fascination for scientists, and as the space-race destination of our dreams."--Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, American Museum of Natural History, author of "Death By Black Hole" and "The Pluto Files". "Jim Bell's "Moon 3-D" provides a delightful sampling of Apollo's stereo-photographs and other images for the enjoyment of the viewer as well as the enlightenment of scientists."--Dr. Harrison H. "Jack" Schmitt, Apollo 17 astronaut
