Descriptions du produit
This National Geographic Space Atlas has special meaning for me. It is an enduring honor to have been one of the few humans to have stood on the moon. Just 12 years after the launch of the Soviet Union’s first Earth-orbiting artificial satellite, Sputnik1, Neil Armstrong and I set foot on the moon on July 20, 1969.The moon to me is not a distant object in space but a real place where I spent time, and a real landscape that I remember in my mind’s eye. Looking at the maps of Earth’s moon on these pages is for me a little like retracing a vacation on the map that was carried along.
Revue de presse
“A joy to look at…For all those who ever dreamed of traveling to the stars, Space Atlas will surely keep those fantasies alive.” –Seattle Post-Intelligencer

Update July 20,2014 There is a paperback version of this book which is showing up in the clearance section of large book stores. The paperback version opens flat and has no binding problems.
and heavy and full of many useful resources. One I find most useful is the topography of the planets derived from satellite
imaging. This allows us to see the planets like we have never seen them before. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is into the topic of astronomy and related fields. As an astronomy instructor I will find this book very helpful and an exquisite visual reference to many topics discussed in class.
