About the Book

Marking the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s ‘small step’ this beautiful book from Royal Museums Greenwich explores people’s fascination with our only natural satellite. Immerse yourself in contemporary essays and fascinating images wrapped in a sleek design.

Edited by the museum’s curators, Melanie Vandenbrouck, Megan Barford, Louise Devoy and Richard Dunn, this book illuminates how art and science meet in our profound connection with the Moon. It features authors from a variety of disciplines, including cultural historians, curators, a scientist, a poet and a space law expert among others.

Divided into four sections, the first, A Constant Companion, explores why we started to observe the Moon. Through the Lens reveals advancements in technology for observing details not visible with a naked eye. 50 years after man set foot on the moon, Destination Moon explores how the moon was represented before humankind’s first landing. The final section For All Mankind? reflects on how our relationship with our closest cosmic companion continues to evolve.
