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 and now including “Reflections: Apollo 13 in Pictures and Words” featuring Apollo 13 astronaut Fred Haise. Look for additional features in the coming months.
