Forty-three years ago, on 20 July 1969, mankind first landed on another world. To celebrate the historic achievement, Sky at Night Magazine produced a 116-page collectors’ edition.


This special issue explains the incredible story of Neil Armstrong’s first step, and investigates the spacecraft that made it possible – the mighty Saturn V, which remains the largest and most powerful rocket ever built. It also looks into how Apollo 11’s successful Moon mission had its roots in American failures in the early days of the Space Race, when the USSR had the upper hand.

There are also reflections from the BBC team who brought the unique event to an audience of millions in the UK’s first ever all-night broadcast, plus picture sections on all the pivotal points of the mission from construction to splashdown.


Order Sky at Night Magazine’s 40th anniversary collector’s edition, Man On The Moon by calling 0844 844 0254, or by visiting Buy Subscriptions.
