INDIEGOGO FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN FOR APOLLO 13 FILM

2019-03-26T03:56:58+00:00Categories: Apollo, Apollospace Presents, Films|Tags: , , |0 Comments

Indiegogo Campaign

 

Apollospace is embarking on an Indiegogo fundraising campaign to complete our Apollo 13 film, “Reflections: Apollo 13 in Pictures and Words” with Apollo 13 Astronaut, Fred Haise.  The most incredible Apollo images, fully restored at the highest resolution, are brought to life for our “Apollo Reflections” series – films featuring Apollo photography described by the men who were there, beginning with our first film released for the 50th anniversary of Apollo 7, “Reflections: Apollo 7 in Pictures and Words,” featuring astronaut Walt Cunningham.  Your contribution will help us complete the second film, “Reflections: Apollo 13 in Pictures and Words,” with Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise, as well as record additional astronaut interviews.

Apollo Reflections

If a picture is indeed worth a thousand words, then the story of Apollo, told through the nearly 20,000 photographs taken during the eleven manned Apollo missions between 1968 and 1972, would literally take tens of millions of words to tell.

The Apollo Program was, undoubtedly, one of the greatest accomplishments in human history.  Human beings, for the first time, left the Earth and gazed back at our beautiful planet, the source of all we have ever known, learning more not only about the wider universe, but also about ourselves and our own world. 

This project cannot possible begin to come close to telling the full story of Apollo – what we are doing is producing the most beautiful, fully restored, high resolution Apollo mission flight photographs available anywhere and featuring them in a series of documentary-style interviews with the Apollo Astronauts who took them.  Collectively the Apollo mission images and the reflections of the astronauts about them tell a story the likes of which will never be forgotten.  These iconic images will long endure.

Some of our favorite Apollo mission photographs, and the favorites of the astronauts who took them, are the focus of a series of interview documentaries Apollospace is producing with a focus on Apollo program photography as we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of […]

THE APOLLO 8 FLIGHT IMAGES COLLECTION

Apollospace® proudly presents the most comprehensive collection of fully restored and enhanced Apollo 8 flight images at the highest quality and resolution available!

Apollo 8, the second manned Apollo mission and the first to venture to the moon, celebrates its 50th Anniversary December 21-27, 2018.

866 high resolution flight images from the historic Apollo 8 Mission – every image photographed by astronauts during this historic mission!

Click the image below to order:

All images measure 5200 x 5200 pixels at 300 dpi, with photo credits to: NASA/JSC/ASU/Apollospace

This special commemorative Apollo 8 50th Anniversary USB flash drive contains the complete catalog of every photograph taken by the Apollo 8 astronauts during this historic mission  – fully restored and enhanced at the highest quality and resolution available!

The 866 flight images contained on this USB together total more than 11 gigabytes in size …

That’s enough to fill 3 DVDS!

At 5200 pixels, the Apollo 8 flight images on this USB are up to 70% larger than partially restored and corrected counterparts available online and on other commercially available media, which generally measure only up to 3000 pixels each, are only a few megabytes in size (if that), and have not been fully restored, corrected and cleaned.

Each and every image on The Apollo 8 Flight Images USB has been painstakingly cropped and corrected for color, tone, and contrast and cleaned of blemishes including dust, hairs, scan lines, emulsion spots, streaks, scratches, stray reflections, and other flaws.

It is common for images to require as many as several hundred separate corrective actions (even thousands!) to achieve the fully restored, corrected, and enhanced versions available on this USB.  It is impossible to overstate the quality and beauty of these photographs – the most pristine they’ve appeared since they were originally taken […]

Apollo 8: The Earth From Here

2019-03-11T18:38:19+00:00Categories: Apollo, Apollo 8, Apollospace Presents, Films|Tags: , , |0 Comments

In anticipation of the 50th Anniversary of the historic Apollo 8 mission, the first to leave the close confines of planet Earth and venture to the Moon, Apollospace produced this short film, “Apollo 8: The Earth From Here.” 

In December 1968, a year marred by division and pain, human beings ventured farther out than ever before.  The crew of Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, and Bill Anders became the first human beings to see the entire Earth, the lunar farside, and the first Earthrise. This short film uses the highest resolution, fully restored Apollo 8 photographs accompanied by contemporaneous radio transmission descriptions from the Apollo 8 crew.

October 11, 1968: Liftoff of Apollo 7.  The Apollo era begins, and within nine short months and four additional missions, America landed men on the Moon and a human being set foot there.

To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo era, beginning with the launch of Apollo 7 in October, 1968, Apollospace presents, “Reflections: Apollo 7 in Pictures and Words,” featuring our best Apollo 7 photography described by the sole remaining crewman from that mission: Apollo 7 astronaut Walt Cunningham.  In this 23 minute film, Walt reflects on his NASA career, some of his favorite Apollo images, and the future of spaceflight.  The interview with Walt was shot in 4K on August 30, 2018, and the dozens of Apollo era images featured in the film are higher resolution than that – select the 4K option in the settings.  Please enjoy Walt’s reflections on Apollo 7 and the many wonderful photographs he took.  The beginning, fifty years ago today.

Some of our favorite photographs and the favorites of the astronauts who took or are featured in them are the focus of a series of documentaries Apollospace is producing on Apollo program missions and photography as we celebrate the 50th anniversaries of these amazing missions. These incredible images, many hidden in obscurity for decades, are brought to life as part of our “Apollo Reflections” series – films featuring Apollo era photography described by those who were there – beginning with “Reflections: Apollo 7 in Pictures and Words” featuring Apollo 7 astronaut Walt Cunningham.  Look for additional features in the coming months.

Remembering Alan Bean

2018-05-27T19:44:17+00:00Categories: Apollo, Astronauts|Tags: , |0 Comments

I am devastated at news of the loss of Apollo 12 & Skylab II Astronaut, Alan Bean (March 15, 1932 – May 26, 2018).  Alan Bean was a hero in so many respects, as a Navy test pilot, an astronaut, 4th man on the moon during Apollo 12, commander of Skylab II living in space for 59 days, an amazing artist and an incredible wit, but most importantly he was a dear sweet human being. Someone with a childlike sparkle in his eyes who genuinely enjoyed life and the people he met. He was touched by the beauty of our planet, humanity, and all life and that awe at the wonder of creation was contagious. His joy and good humor are irreplaceable.  There simply will not be another like him.

I was incredibly fortunate to know him for about 20 years and cannot possibly recount all the wonderful conversations we had over the years. There was a sincerity and genuineness about him though that, irrespective of any particular conversation, always shined in him that I will always carry with me as long as I live – he was truly a beacon in this world.

I first met him in person during a visit with him at his Houston home and studio in 2000.  Though we had corresponded through the mail and by phone before that this was one of the best days of my life – I was so fortunate speak with him at length about his career, see some of his space memorabilia, his incredible paintings, the flag from his spacesuit he cut up to include threads in his paintings… so fortunate throughout the years to see him at various shows around the country and share a meal or a drink… all these great memories I can’t begin to recall right now… I can’t express what a joy he was to be with.

My thoughts, prayers, and condolences to his family, especially his daughter Amy Sue Bean, all his friends and colleagues and the whole world that this wonderful man is gone … This is a sad and difficult day.  I was […]
