Review: The Year in Space wall calendar for 2013

The Year in Space wall calendar for 2013.

If you are a space exploration fan and need a wall calendar for the new year, then look no further. The new 2013 edition of the Year in Space calendar is now available! This beautiful calendar is published in cooperation with The Planetary Society.

The first thing you’ll notice is the size. When hanging on the wall, the calendar measures an impressive 40 centimetres x 56 centimetres (16 inches x 22 inches)! The large format is well utilized, too, with gorgeous photographs and a ton of information about a wide variety of space missions, planets and other cosmic wonders, as well as bios of well-known astronomers, astronauts and scientists.

There is a lot to see and read in the new calendar… click for larger version.

The calendar area itself also contains lots of space trivia, a Sky Guide and Moon phases for each month.

You can 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. As a bonus, you can also get a 50% discount on a new membership with The Planetary Society!

There is a lot more to enjoy here than in your standard space-themed calendar (or most other typical wall calendars for that matter). Every space geek should have one of these stunning calendars, and it makes a great gift too, of course. Highly recommended!
