Event details

Space exploration in its many approaches is inspirational, especially when we can admire images that show us the furthest corners of our hostile solar system. Even more impressive is to then see the equipment and people using it in space or on the Moon illustrating how fragile we are. Such images really capture the sublime of space exploration.

Utilising modern digital image enhancement techniques, Andy Saunders will reveal the story of humankind's greatest adventure, 50 years on. Andy Saunders has become well known for his work since presenting the first ever clear image showing Neil Armstrong's face during his first Moon walk. His talk Apollo Remastered is a photographic journey through the Apollo programme, including remastered and recovered images of the 50-year-old film from the NASA archives. This will include a special section celebrating the 50th anniversary of NASA's "finest hour" - Apollo 13.

Booking is required for this event. While attending, you consent to filming, photography, and sound recording – which may include you as a member of the audience – and its use in publication or advertising distribution, either printed or online, without payment or copyright.
