Apollo tribute series from 35mm TV photographs
« on: January 27, 2019, 05:36:04 PM »
A slideshow of scans from 35mm slides used to photograph a TV screen. Slides borrowed from a collectspace member Bill to preserve them for future generations.

Hopefully this will bring some people back to the glory days of the USA space program, and perhaps television. Source scans are 5K.

There are several hundreds more slide in this collection, covering Apollo 8 through 17. Currently scanning through Apollo 10. Also found within the playlist is a slideshow of Apollo 15 TV broadcast slides.

Some can be found here https://archive.org/details/thirdpartyspacephotos under the 'Collectspace-2' designator.

More scans and videos will be uploaded.

Enjoy.

I have uploaded Bill's photos of Apollo 8 and 9. Apollo 10 and 11 are still incomplete.

I am working hard on crunching out the further Apollo 11 EVA, more live photos inside the CM and the recovery photos before the 50th anniversary. Then I will be completing Apollo 10, 15 16 and 17. Unfortunately I dropped the slide trays at one point, and it has been difficult getting Apollo 15, 16 and 17 back in the correct order. Apollo 17 for example has 5 sets, all with the same writing and numbering.

Photography copyright Bill.
Scanning work Niels.








It might be interesting to but the NASA EVA video and Bill's photos next to each other with audio. Shouldnt be too hard to sync?

Experience how Bill saw Apollo 11 at his grandparents!
