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 44/V contains 157 color images, NASA #s AS11-44-6540 to AS11-44-6696. This Magazine contains photographs of the lunar surface, a beautiful color Earthrise, LM separation, the LM rendezvous with the CM, trans-earth insertion, and images of the Earth shortly before splashdown.

Some of the most iconic images from orbit are included in this magazine, including an incredible Earthrise series.

There is a very nice series of the LM, Eagle, separating from the CM for its descent to the lunar surface.

And another great series of the Eagle’s ascent and rendezvous.

There are relatively few crater and limb shots in this magazine.

But there is a wonderful series of the receding Moon and approaching Earth as the crew nears the completion of the mission with their safe return.

There are a number of very detailed images of the surface craters and limbs in this magazine.

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

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.
