From the box:
The First Step On The Moon Nearly Stumbled On Earth.
It’s the biggest event since sheep invented wool! Apollo 11’s astronauts will walk on the moon — and the 1,000-ton satellite dish in tiny, sheep-farming Parkes, Australia, will beam that historic first step around the globe. But as giddy citizens prepare for the moment when the entire world will depend on them, the dish flatlines. And its unconventional Aussie crew and its by-the-book NASA supervisor from the U.S. have very different ideas about how to fix it.
