The photographs taken during early spaceflight and, in particular, during our journeys to the Moon are some of the most important, iconic, and reproduced in history. But how were they taken? What equipment was used? And why do we so often see apparently low quality imagery?
The original NASA photographic film is securely stored in a frozen vault at Johnson Space Center, Houston. It never leaves the building – in fact, the film rarely leaves the freezer. For half a century, almost every image of the Moon landings publicly available was produced from a lower-quality copy of these originals. Andy Saunders is a British author, science writer, and one of the world’s foremost experts of NASA digital restoration. In his talk Apollo Remastered he outlines how he has applied painstaking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques to scans of the original film, to create the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced. Revealing detail that has been lost for half a century, they offer astounding new insight and a mesmerising retrospective of humankind’s greatest adventure.
