“The future belongs to those who see the possibilities before they become obvious... This is the most exciting time ever to be part of the business world.” Throughout history, there are some events that stand out as so groundbreaking that they completely change life as we know it. The Apollo moon landing of 1961 was one of those events—the invention of the Apple personal computer was another. In this book, John Sculley—former CEO of both Pepsi and Apple—claims we are in an era that is giving birth to numerous groundbreaking events and inventions—moonshots—that will change the way we live and work for generations to come. The time is ripe, according to Sculley, for a new breed of innovative entrepreneurs to build businesses across industries that will bring in billions of dollars—while changing people’s lives for the better. And in this book, he’ll show you how to do it. Moonshot! lays out a roadmap for building a truly transformative business, beginning with a can’t-fail concept and drawing on clear examples from companies who’ve done innovation right.

'It didn't matter that they were now three miles beyond their target site, that communications were dropping out and that they were running low on fuel. All that mattered to Neil as he searched for a safe spot to land was that boulders littered the surface below. "Thirty seconds," called mission control. In truth, the flight controllers were now no more than spectators, just like everybody else. No more needed to be said.It was down to Armstrong.' Simultaneously connected and separated by television, millions of people around the world held their breath as a human being looked back at them from the surface of the Moon. Yet who were these men capable of such an achievement? How did the passionate Buzz Aldrin, inscrutable Michael Collins and enigmatic Neil Armstrong learn to depend on one another as they endured the most intense period of their lives? From the personal tragedies and triumphs they encountered along the way to the terrifying climax of a mission that redefined humanity, Moonshot - now also a major TV factual-drama - draws on interviews with many of the leading participants and hundreds of hours of archive material to tell the compelling true story of an event that captured the imagination of generations, then and now.

A revised edition of the New York Times bestselling classic: the epic story of the golden years of American space exploration, told by the men who rode the rockets On October 4, 1957, the Soviet Union launched Sputnik I, and the space race was born. Desperate to beat the Russians into space, NASA put together a crew of the nation’s most daring test pilots: the seven men who were to lead America to the moon. The first into space was Alan Shepard; the last was Deke Slayton, whose irregular heartbeat kept him grounded until 1975. They spent the 1960s at the forefront of NASA’s effort to conquer space, and Moon Shot is their inside account of what many call the twentieth century’s greatest feat—landing humans on another world. Collaborating with NBC’s veteran space reporter Jay Barbree, Shepard and Slayton narrate in gripping detail the story of America’s space exploration from the time of Shepard’s first flight until he and eleven others had walked on the moon.

Existiert der Mond, wenn niemand hinschaut? Existieren Atome und Teilchen überhaupt - in der Realität? Wozu braucht man in der Quantenmechanik einen bewußten Beobachter? Was sagt die Quantenphysik über die wahre Beschaffenheit der Natur, die Konstruktion von Wirklichkeit und den menschlichen Geist tatsächlich aus? Ist es nicht sonnenklar, daß die Natur und Realität auch ohne die Gattung Mensch real existieren muß? Ist es wirklich wahr, daß man die Quantenphysik aus Prinzip nicht mehr verstehen kann? Oder ist die Physik 1927 nur etwas voreilig in eine erkenntnistheoretische Sackgasse abgebogen - und hat deshalb die wichtigste Entdeckung der modernen Physik übersehen? Über solche Fragen haben Niels Bohr und Albert Einstein schon vor 90 Jahren heftige Debatten geführt. Und lange schien es vielen Physikern so, als hätte Niels Bohr das Rennen gewonnen: Er hatte behauptet, das Quantenrätsel sei zufriedenstellend gelöst. Doch diese Einstellung ändert sich gerade - und damit beginnt die zweite Quantenrevolution. Wir müssen nur liebgewonnene, aber falsche physikalische Vorstellungen über Bord werfen, um die wahre Beschaffenheit der Natur verstehen zu können. Die liebste all dieser Vorstellungen ist die 2500 Jahre alte Annahme einer atomaren Beschaffenheit der Realität. Doch diese Annahme kollidiert schon seit 100 Jahren mit der Quantentheorie, ohne das jemand die Botschaft der Experimente wirklich versteht: Demokrits Atomhypothese ist tot - doch Avogadros Molekülhypothese überlebt! Diese Einsicht führt direkt zur Entdeckung der molekularen Zellteilung, zu den Molekülorbitalmodellen der Quantentheorie und zu einer einheitlichen Feldstrukturphysik im Sinne Einsteins. Und besonders dramatisch: Junge Physiker wie Friedrich Hund und Robert Mulliken haben schon zwischen 1927 und 1932 eine Molekularphysik ohne Atome entworfen - die wurde nur nicht konsequent genug als Entdeckung einer neuen physikalischen Realität interpretiert...

Brilliantly illustrated, Moonshot tells the story of our first visit to the moon in 1969—an unforgettable story of home, seen whole, from far away. Simply told, grandly shown, here is the flight of Apollo 11. Here for a new generation of readers and explorers are the steady astronauts, clicking themselves into gloves and helmets, strapping themselves into sideways seats. Here are their great machines in all their detail and monumentality, the ROAR of rockets, and the silence of the Moon. Here is a story of adventure and discovery -- a story of leaving and returning during the summer of 1969, and a story of home, seen whole, from far away.

The daughter of a legend, the Yankees were my family, their stadium my home, their dugout my workplace. My focus was on the game. Chase ... he started out as a distraction. A distraction with sex appeal poured into every inch of his six foot frame. A distraction who played like a god and partied like a devil. I tried to stay away. I couldn’t. Then, the team started losing. Women started dying. And everything in my perfect world broke apart.
