GQ (Australia) - - THE SOURCE -

Matt Damon’s The Mar­tian just hit cine­mas, busi­ness mag­nate Elon Musk and Spacex have sights set on the real thing, and as­tro­naut Buzz Aldrin is due to visit our shores for a se­ries of speak­ing en­gage­ments next month. Now Taschen is join­ing the space race. Pulitzer Prize-win­ning au­thor Nor­man Mailer frst cov­ered the 1969 moon land­ing for LIFE mag­a­zine, with a se­ries of ar­ti­cles that later be­came best­seller Of a Fire on the Moon. This new adap­ta­tion not only fea­tures Mailer’s re­flec­tions on the Apollo 11 voy­age, but also show­cases nu­mer­ous pho­to­graphs of the his­toric land­ing by Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins. If you’re not a bil­lion­aire, it’s a handy way to get a glimpse into outer space.
