520 _aOnly twenty-four human beings have travelled to the Moon. Theirs were the most daring voyages in mankind's history and their view of Earth from the moon changed them and the way we see our home planet. Now in their emeritus years, the twelve remaining lunar explorers for the first time reveal the true source of courage, leadership, and the quiet patriotism that it took to accomplish their missions. Their voyages to the Moon led them to the most incredible discovery of all: our home planet and its precious place in the universe. "The Eagles," as author Basil Hero calls them, fear for Earth's future and offer sensible solutions to its mounting crises and the path to future space exploration. In The Mission Of A Lifetime, the Eagles share their wisdom and urge us to reframe our view of Earth to theirs: no identifiable nations, borders, or races; just Earthlings working together as a collective civilization. Hero begins each chapter with key life lessons that readers can gain from these honorable men-from overcoming fear to finding gratitude and practicing humility in all that you do.
