July 2019 marked the 50th anniversary of the first manned moon landing, a milestone in human history. NASA’s Apollo missions have lost none of their appeal to this day. This illustrated book shows almost forgotten, unpublished photographic material from the archives of NASA taken by the Apollo astronauts during their missions and painstakingly digitized. From over 27,000 photographs, the authors have selected the 225 best images. The result is a unique documentary about perhaps the most important event of the 20th century.
