Story

Long before scientists took the possibility of traveling to the Moon seriously, virtually all of its aspects had already been explored in art and literature. Our nearest astronomical neighbor, the Moon ― just three days journey by spacecraft ― still serves as an object of creative projection and speculation for visionaries across the globe. More than five decades after the first moonwalk, this book traces a visual, cultural history of lunar exploration in snapshots from the past, present, and future. From Ptolemy’s early calculations of the distance from the Earth to the Moon and Galileo’s invention of the telescope and his pen drawings of the lunar surface to the golden age of space travel in the mid-twentieth century with Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey and the concrete preparations for the Apollo Moon landing. Memories of the Moon Age explores space travel to the moon as an inspiration for human imagination and a testing ground for making ideas a reality.
