To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon landing, the National Geographic Society is planning to highlight the mission in its July issue including a new map of the Moon. Hear is the notice below:
The July issue of National Geographic magazine looks at the history and future of space exploration, including original photography and extensive graphics. The issue features an up-to-date lunar map, following in the tradition of the iconic 1969 version that, at the time, was the first of its kind. The map is based on some 15,000 images and height data from NASA's Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter, which has surveyed the entire lunar surface. Look out for the July issue online at natgeo.com/starstruck beginning June 13 and on print newsstands on June 25th.
Also, the National Geographic Channel's has a two-hour special "Apollo: Missions to the Moon" which airs Sunday July 7 at 9 pm EDT. It will be broadcast globally in 172 countries and 43 languages.
Here is a link to the full announcement on the Business Wire website:

Thanks. And finally a supplement!
Hate to disappoint you Harold, but the map is "in-magazine" its not even perforated.
I'm so envious, Juan. :-(
bummer for U.S. !
I am curious Juan, is the map one sided, or is there more information/images in the back? I don't recall from the top of my head seeing a single sided supplement/map from the English National Geographic versions.
