This book is a light-hearted, funny story about what really happened during the Apollo Project. Never before has the history of the Apollo Program been told like this.  But author Sara W. Howard, herself one of the first and only women to have ever worked on the Saturn V as an aerospace engineer, takes this famous story down from the heavens to the peons in the pits. In Something Funny Happened on the Way to the Moon, we finally hear about Apollo from the Earthly perspective. Howard tells us what it was like for the 400,000 people on the ground who together built the largest and most powerful rocket in history. Though the astronauts themselves were, of course, important to the mission, this story looks beyond the glitz and glamour of the stars and honors the men and women who made this vast program a reality. Sara Howard brings this story to the masses with a perspective and truth only she could bring.  She brings us story to educate the world on the true story of Apollo, and of the incredible men and women who dedicated their lives to protecting others and who changed the course of history forever.
