Moon Rush: The New Space Race
Jul 9, 2019
The race to the moon is on again! In his new book “Moon Rush: The New Space Race,” veteran space journalist Leonard David explores our enduring fascination with the moon, from ancient myth to plans for a future “Moon Village.”
David offers insider information about how the United States, its allies and competitors, and key private corporations, such as Moon Express and Jeff Bezos’s Blue Origin, plan to reach, inhabit and even harvest the moon in the decades to come. Spurred on by the Google Lunar XPRIZE — $20 million for the first to get to the moon and send back images — the 21st-century space race has become even more compelling. David’s reporting and accompanying maps, graphics and photographs shed new light on our constant lunar companion, offering reasons to gaze up and see it as never before.
