“Astronaut Training Sites” provides some of the most obscure sites associated with the Apollo program, which are the astronaut training locations across the world- examples include the Meteor Crater in Arizona and Sierra Blanca. Field training required a number of remote locations with unique geology in order to receive instruction and practice on navigating and performing mission duties while in similar rocky, volcanic conditions. This chapter also provides an overview of how astronauts were originally selected, mainly, by Eugene Shoemaker.
