To celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing (and score more potential mail addresses), the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS) is offering free access to the January 30, 1970 issue of Science magazine.

However, registration with the AAAS is required in order to get access to PDF versions of articles published in the issue.

According to the AAAS, the 335 page issue was “one of the largest issues ever published by Science.” It includes some of the first lunar science results published after astronauts returned samples from the moon:

Also included in the special issue were a summary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Science Conference, measurements of the age of the Moon, findings of rare Earth elements in the lunar samples of soils and rocks, research on the composition of sun and solar wind processes, general mineralogy from the Sea of Tranquility, insights into important rock-forming processes, and assessment of organic compounds in lunar materials.

If you don’t mind getting a little spam from the AAAS, check it out!
