Gerrit Rietveld reissued, a virtual reality gender swap, NASA in art and more in our weekly look at the web

With space tourism a growing industry and the Mars Rover’s journey to the Red Planet captivating the world, interest in space is the highest it’s been in decades. A recent exhibition in London, “For All Mankind” reveals over a hundred rare photos from NASA’s first pursuit of a successful manned moon landing, spanning from 1964 to 1983. The photos—all shot on film—offer both an intimate glimpse into the experience of the astronauts and also a broader perspective on the sheer tenacity and pioneering spirit of NASA’s cavalier beginnings.
