Kevin and Zander Cannon interviewed on Newsarama about T-Minus!



Michael Lorah interviewed Kevin and me about our upcoming book T-Minus: the Race for the Moon, coming in May from Simon and Schuster's Aladdin Books imprint. Written by Jim Ottaviani, the book covers the US-Soviet space race from a century before Sputnik up to the US moon landing 40 years ago this summer.
