Apollo Remastered at Glasgow Science Centre
The original NASA photographic film from the Apollo missions is some of the most important and valuable film in existence. It is securely stored in a frozen vault at Johnson Space Center, Houston. It never leaves the building – in fact, the film rarely leaves the freezer. The images it contains include the most significant moments in our history, as humankind left the confines of our home planet for the first time and set foot on another world.
For half a century, almost every image of the Moon landings publicly available was produced from a lower-quality copy of these originals. Until now…
Andy Saunders is a British author, science writer, and one of the world’s foremost experts of NASA digital restoration. He has applied painstaking care and cutting-edge enhancement techniques to scans of the original film, to create the highest quality Apollo photographs ever produced. Revealing detail that has been lost for half a century, they offer astounding new insight and a mesmerising retrospective of humankind’s greatest adventure.
To coincide with the release of his book, and the 50th anniversary of our last steps on the Moon, Andy Saunders will present an exhibition of more than 30 remastered photographs from the Apollo programme.
The Apollo Remastered exhibition is coming to Glasgow Science Centre!
Over 30 large-scale framed photographs and information panels showcasing remastered images from the pre-Apollo missions, and every crewed mission from Apollo 7 to Apollo 17, will be displayed.
The exhibition will be on display at Glasgow Science Centre from 25 November.
The Apollo Remastered exhibition is free to access with your day entry ticket to visit the science centre (only £12.50 / £10.50).
