    Do you know recent magazines about the 50th anniversary of the moon landing in English? Would be glad to get any infos. Unfortunately I am not in the US and can not go to a store just to take a look. So I need your help. I hope to find a lot of astronauts with "our" Speedy inside.

    Germany. But I can send US magazines to a friend in the USA and I can pick them up later this year.

    But some magazines are maybe time limited and then the next issue comes out so it may be better to order now. That is the reason for my question.

    If you PM me the address I would gladly send the extra one I bought specifically for this reason. You are the first to publicly ask about magazines here.

    There are quite a few magazines in German, as well. Or are you only interested in English magazines right now?

    Great. I will PM you asap.

    I was already there but they said that the (German) magazine is not available at this moment and would be released a few weeks later and they wanted to send it to me. This was 4 weeks ago, maybe I have to ask again. Thanks for the tip

    Tnx for your post, I wouldn't have known about it if I didn't follow this thread. I just contacted my AD which allocated me the SS and is going to send a magazine.

    BTW is it only mentioning the gold one?

    I bought quite a few German magazines this year, incl. the one in your heise link. In addition: Der Spiegel, FliegerRevue, Zeit Geschichte, and also this book which I found rather good: Das Apollo Projekt. Hope that helps...
