space

July 19, 2009

tomorrow is the 40th anniversary of the man’s first moon landing. there has been some really excellent reading material both online and in print and i feel like i a kid in a candy store. (as you may remember some of my pasts posts, here and here (scroll down), about my love of all things outerspace)

if you have a chance i would pick up a copy of the new GQ (with bruno on the cover) while you may feel weird walking around with a naked sacha baren cohen on the cover, there is an excellent article about the future of nasa and it’s return to the moon. there are some amazing photographas by robert polidori which look much better in print than online.

the current issue of time also has some excellent conversations with the men who walked on the moon and took part in the apollo missions.

here is an nytimes op-ed by tom wolfe (author of the right stuff)

and a great blog piece about ‘for all mankind’ and space and music on moviemorlocks

    I totally agree with you. I’ve had NASA’s stream of the Apollo 11 mission running over the last few days. (http://www.nasa.gov/externalflash/apollo11_radio/index.html)
