In February, Brian May and David Eicher will deliver talks in support of their book MISSION MOON 3-D, published in October by the London Stereoscopic Company and MIT Press. The book features a unique set of 150 stereoscopic images of the Apollo Moon missions and the space race from its beginnings. It has succeeded admirably with great critical acclaim.

Three public talks will take place in February in the United Kingdom and in the Netherlands. On February 6, David Eicher will address a crowd at the John Adams Institute in Amsterdam, speaking about the Mission Moon book, Astronomy Magazine, his career in science and journalism, and other book projects. He will also conduct a moderated interview with André Kuipers, the second Dutch astronaut in space, a veteran of the International Space Station.
