Every year at this time there are a lot of new calendars to choose from, but only a few that are space or astronomy-related, or visually stunning or unique enough to stand out from the crowd. If that is what you are looking for, then look no further. The new 2014 edition of the Year in Space calendar is now available! This beautiful calendar is published in cooperation with The Planetary Society.
As before, the size is still the first thing you notice and what makes it different from most other calendars, as it measures a whopping 40 centimetres x 56 centimetres (16 inches x 22 inches)! The main calendar area itself is filled with space trivia, a Sky Guide and Moon phases for each month, a lot more than just upcoming holidays as with most calendars. The rest of the calendar is also crammed with lots of good stuff – over 120 images, hundreds of space dates in history, details on various aspects of space, planets, moons and space missions as well as bios of historical astronomers and scientists. Also Fast Facts, with yet more space trivia! This isn’t just a calendar, it’s a year-long tour of the Universe! It was also named the Science Geek Gift of the Year by MSNBC Cosmic Log.
You can preview and order the calendar here; by ordering online, you can purchase the calendar for only $12.95 US (a savings of 24%), with additional discounts for bulk orders.
