Apollo Remastered

Summary

Discover space as you've never seen it before, with these awe-inspiring, breathtakingly restored images of our first missions to the Moon

'The next best thing to being there' Charlie Duke, Apollo 16 astronaut

In a frozen vault in Houston sits the original NASA photographic film of the Apollo missions. For half a century, almost every image of the Moon landings publicly available was produced from a lower-quality copy of these originals.

Now we can view them as never before. Expert image restorer Andy Saunders has taken newly available digital scans and, applying pain-staking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques, he has created the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced. Never-before-seen spacewalks and crystal-clear portraits of astronauts in their spacecraft, along with startling new visions of the Earth and the Moon, offer astounding new insight into one of our greatest endeavours.

This is the definitive record of the Apollo missions and a mesmerizing, high definition journey into the unknown.

Reviews

  • Andy Saunders' remastered images are so clear and real that they are the next best thing to being there. . . They are an exact representation of what I remember from my journey to the Moon on Apollo 16. These photos reveal very precisely what the Moon was really like
