Gift Review - Moon Poster

 

Buy direct from the maker


It's always supposed to be more difficult to buy presents for men, and though this incredibly detailed poster map of the moon would appeal to anyone into astronomy, it's certainly a likely contender for those male targets.

At the heart of the poster is a photographic moon map with all sorts of details - not just the lunar geography, but Apollo landings and the site of other probes.

It is also surrounded by a huge host of informational panels from details of specific features of the moon to statistics, details of what's going on under the surface and even chemical analysis maps.

In fact, if there's one complaint about the poster it's that there's just oo much detail. You have to be able to see it quite close up to get all the information on there, so it will need careful wall placing.

Even so, it's a great complement to the home observatory, the bedroom of a space nut or the office of someone who likes to peer up at the night sky.

The cost isn't at all bad at 12.95 posted anywhere in the world - at the time of writing that's about 10.50 or $20.50.

DISCLAIMERS

This site has no connection with Popular Science magazine or other sites and publications with a similar name.

Much of the content of this site is written by popular science writers or friends of popular science writers. Inevitably many of the reviews in such a small community are written by or about someone we know. We always aim to be impartial in our reviews, but there is a connection which we need make clear, as there is no intention to deceive. The content of any review or article is solely the opinion of the author and should not be read or understood on any other basis. The site exists to promote popular science writing and popular science authors and for this reason should be considered promotional material, just as the editorial reviews in an online bookshop or the blurb on the back of a book should be considered promotional.

The website should not be eaten or used where it can come into contact with water.
