This collection is out of this world.

The Apollospace Imaging Process:

The Apollospace image process page details the technical work of bringing these photographs to life.  But more than an historical record of one of the greatest accomplishments in human history, these images are art.   Each Apollo era photograph appearing on this site was taken by a human hand and with a human eye.  50 years later, each one has been restored, corrected, and enhanced with a human eye as well, to be as visually pleasing as they are historically and naturally accurate.

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. 

Astronaut Fred Haise has called the image collection “incredible” and “amazing.”

Others have commented: “they are without a doubt the highest quality image archive I have seen, and you need to be congratulated on the work and effort you have gone to!”

“Amazing quality images … I hope more people see the work you are doing it is truly amazing! It’s a gold mine for those who know it!

This is THE DEFINITIVE collection of completely restored, ultra-high resolution photographs from the Apollo 7 through Apollo 11 missions – every photograph taken by the astronauts on these historic missions to land men on the moon and return them safely to Earth.  You cannot find these incredible photographs at this quality and resolution on-line or anywhere else.  In short, this is the best collection of these images available anywhere.

Campaign Goals:

The mold and prototype of the “First Steps” Saturn V USB have been produced. This campaign has a goal of $10,000 to manufacture, package, and promote this incredible Apollo Photography archive, while gauging interest into how many we will look to produce for release in July, 2019 on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of Apollo 11.
