Description

“And so, the moon returns nightly to haunt us like some ‘Marie Celestis’, carrying the ghosts of our dreams and aspirations” — from the Introduction

The moment of the first lunar landing, 20 July 1969, has become a monument — the documents, images and recordings now accessible to millions. But the actual site — the scene of the event, the footprints, abandoned objects, the Landing Module — remains preserved for millennia, vacuum packed in non-existent atmosphere.

J.G. Ballard described Project Apollo as “the last great act undertaken by the United States out of a sense of optimism.” In Lost in Space Andrew Dodds draws on information from NASA archives, correspondence with specialists in the field and personally gathered ephemera, to find the objects abandoned at Tranquillity Base; objects invested with dreams and aspirations, now succumbed to obsolescence.
