For the 10 days leading to the 50th anniversary of humanity’s first steps on another world, Apollospace will feature a different Apollo 11 photo magazine and highlight the most significant, iconic, and enduring images from the Apollo 11 mission and in the history of photography. Apollo 11 Magazine 39/Q contains 107 black & white images, NASA #s AS11-39-5737 to AS11-39-5843. The Magazine consists of photographs of Tranquility Base, including views of the Lunar Module, Eagle’s, shadow and the landing area, before and after the historic moonwalk. The Lunar Module casts its shadow on the lunar surface at Tranquility Base.
These black and white photos, like the color photos in Magazine 37/R, show some nice “before and after” photos of the lunar surface. The pristine surface below
can be compared with the the surface following the moonwalk.
The contrast of black and white photographs makes the detail of the foot prints stand out.
Enjoy the entire magazine below, individually or in a slide show. Please note that the images here are 1200 x 1200 pixel full screen versions of our fully restored photographs. You can download high-resolution versions (3600 x 3600 pixels at 300dpi) by individual mission or mission magazine.
