APOLLO 7 IN PICTURES AND WORDS

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 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.

WELCOME

Welcome to Apollospace!

In a year of numerous 49th and 50th Apollo anniversaries, we couldn’t wait to to bring you the most beautiful, high resolution, fully restored, cleaned, and corrected Apollo era images available anywhere.  You can now view full screen images of the Apollo 7, 8, 9, 10 and 13 missions individually in the mission magazine galleries or, also for the first time, as seamless full screen slide shows.  You can download pristine higher resolution  images by mission magazine (consisting of up to nearly 200 photos each) for only as little as a dollar or two.  No cleaner collection of these images exist and Apollospace is the only place to get them.  We also currently offer a number of Gemini mission galleries as well.  As 49th and 50th Apollo anniversaries approach, we’ll be offering many more images, missions, and  programs.

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.

We also couldn’t wait to bring you our authentic hand-signed astronaut autographed photographs, books, and space flown items.  Our store currently has hundreds of items listed, just a fraction of the hundreds more we have available and will be adding soon.

This is only the beginning.  We will be bringing you even more images from other NASA and international programs, including Mars, planetary galleries, 3D galleries, and more.  

Check back frequently as we will be adding new material and products every week.  Follow Apollospace on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for special offers, rewards, coupons, and other discounts.

If you like space, you will love Apollospace!
