Hello cartography fan,

Please join me in celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Race to the Moon! Map co-author Dick Furno has allowed me to turn his keynote presentation into a post on my blog illustrating the trials and tribulations of creating this fabulous wall map for the National Geographic Society's magazine.

Race to the Moon with Richard Furno

Follow along with Dick's first hand narration of how historic events shaped the map, the cutting edge science involved in assembling the photographic base material, and the many explanitory notes included on the final design. The wall map is a piece of art, please enjoy :)

Feel free to pass this email on to friends and colleages (and post to social networking sites). Part 1 is up now, the second half will follow soon.
