review: Voyager – The Grand Tour

Eberle_Nasa_Road

Martin Eberle’s Voyager – The Grand Tour, published in an edition of just 300 by Berlin-based Drittel Books, is, as the press release humbly states ‘a new publication about the NASA Voyager mission’. comprising three cloth-bound volumes within a slipcase bearing a silhouette of the mission’s famous Golden Record, it seems more fitting to describe it as an exhaustively detailed chronicle of an endeavour as complicated and contradictory in its planning as it was audacious and astounding in its (on-going) execution

so cemented is the Carl Sagan-ized version of the story in public consciousness that, as Eberle demonstrates, it’s easy to forget that when the mission was first conceived, a human-launched object had only just made it as far as Mars: the Mariner 4 flyby in 1965

in fact, for VGR77-2, VGR77-3 (the ‘real’ names of Voyager 1 and Voyager 2) and VGR77-1 (the baby sister that stayed at home at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory), the narrative of a solar-system conquering, intergalactic ambassador of human achievement came later. against the socio-political context of 1970s America it took some convincing to get the project off the ground

Voyager: The Grand Tour

Voyager Martin Eberle

by Martin Eberle
three hardcover books in a slipcase
320 pages total
22.5 × 29cm
edition of 300

an epic new publication that bridges the gap between science, photography and cultural history. in this incredible three band volume, author and photographer Martin Eberle shines a light on one of humanity’s greatest adventures – the Voyager mission

with the sober insight of the 21st century, Eberle documents and recapitulates this self-intoxicated pinnacle of the space age in three meticulous volumes. places, protagonists and technologies are vividly revisited, and the mission’s self-referential messages to the Earth’s inhabitants are resolved pictorially and textually

volume one tells the scientific background of the mission and its extraterrestrial message, volume two exhaustively compiles the ‘images on Earth’ etched on the fabled Golden Record while volume three presents images from Eberle’s photographic journey to the scientific institutions in California, which to this day continue to supervise the twin Voyager probes on their voyage into the unknown

Bad Luck, Hot Rocks

715Va-yGvAL

edited by Ryan Thompson and Phil Orr
144 pages / 7.5 x 10.5 in. / paperback
140 colour photographs

the Petrified Forest National Park in Northeast Arizona protects one of the largest deposits of petrified wood in the world. despite stern warnings, visitors remove several tons of it from the park each year, often returning the rocks by mail (sometimes years later), accompanied by a “conscience letter” which often includes stories of misfortune attributed directly to their theft: car troubles, cats with cancer, deaths of family members, etc

some writers hope that by returning these stolen rocks, good fortune will return to their lives, while others simply apologize or ask forgiveness. Bad Luck, Hot Rocks documents this ongoing phenomenon, combining a series of original photographs of these otherworldly “bad luck rocks” with facsimiles of intimate, oddly entertaining letters from the park’s archives

Find A Fallen Star

CFS3

by Regine Petersen
three hardcover books in slipcase
20 x 25cm
144 pages
78 b&w and colour photos

in Find a Fallen Star, Regine Petersen uses the stories of meteorite falls as a background for her narratives: a rock crashing through the roof of an Alabama home in the 1950’s and hitting a woman, a group of children recovering a meteorite in their village in post-war Germany, and a more recent event in India involving two Rajasthani nomads. Petersen visited the places and the eyewitnesses and delved into their stories, expanding her photographic observations with found documents and interviews. just as meteorites can be considered time capsules, each chapter encapsulates a specific place in a certain time, questioning the notions of memory and history and the relationship between the ordinary and the sublime. designed by Henning Rogge and Regine Petersen with an introductory essay by Natasha Christia

Meteorwrongs

406mm x 508mm
edition of 100

within one of the most well-known collections of meteorites in the world, at the Center for Meteorite Studies at Arizona State University, there is an uncatalogued collection of rocks of mistaken identity. once identified by professional and amateur meteorite hunters as meteorites, these specimens were later proven to have terrestrial origins. Meteorwrongs is an original photo print featuring 21 of these false positives. they range in size from just a few inches to more than one foot in diameter and they all have one thing in common – they are not meteorites. the collection stands as a testament to the evolution of the science of meteoritics and to the limits of human knowledge
