Rating
The journey to other worlds continues! Following the release of Mars 3-D comes a stunning three-dimensional tour of our celestial neighbor. Astronomer Jim Bell flies readers to the Moon just in time to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin’s famous first steps on the lunar surface. After a series of brief essays explaining the history and future of lunar exploration the volume launches into a spectacular showcase of the best 3-D images available taken by both robotic and human exploration missions; the pictures shot by the Apollo astronauts on their Moon walk receive special attention. In addition an artistic selection of non-3D photos appears throughout along with conceptual designs for future moon-based adventures. Author: Bell Jim. Publisher: Sterling Pub. Pages: 160. Dimensions: 6.0" x 9.0" x 0.9".

Reviews

"The next best thing to landing on the Moon."-Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 astronaut "Your first three-dimensional look at the Moon will astound you. So will your next few thousand. But while you're at it, read what Dr. Bell has to say. His insights will knock your moon-boots off."--Bill Nye, Science Guy(R) and vice president of The Planetary Society "Jim Bell once again brings a familiar neighbor down to Earth. But he also explores our romance with the Moon, not only as a perennial source of lore, but also as an object of fascination for scientists, and as the space-race destination of our dreams."--Neil deGrasse Tyson, astrophysicist, American Museum of Natural History, author of "Death By Black Hole" and "The Pluto Files". "Jim Bell's "Moon 3-D" provides a delightful sampling of Apollo's stereo-photographs and other images for the enjoyment of the viewer as well as the enlightenment of scientists."--Dr. Harrison H. "Jack" Schmitt, Apollo 17 astronaut
