National Geographic magazine reaches 49 million print and digital readers in 33 languages worldwide.
The July 2019 issue honored the milestone of astronauts walking on the moon for the first time. The English edition featured a cover story examining the new age of space travel and the renewed interest in going back to the moon.
Most of the international-language editions featured this story on their covers, celebrating the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing this month. Twenty-two editions used the flagship "Earthrise" image, while 11 used an array of alternates.
Only two editions departed: Bulgaria ran the "Menu of the Future" story from November 2018, and Germany created a local feature about Alexander von Humboldt, the scientist and environmentalist whose 250th birthday will be marked this year.
