Moonshots presents stunning photos of space and Earth from NASA's archives-taken by Gemini, Apollo, Space Shuttle, and ISS astronauts using Hasselblad cameras-in the large format they deserve.

Moonshots presents stunning photos of space and Earth from NASA's archives-taken by Gemini, Apollo, Space Shuttle, and ISS astronauts using high resolution Hasselblad cameras. In December 1968, the crew of Apollo 8 captured images depicting Earth hanging like a lonely fruit in the vast darkness of space. The social and spiritual shock of that photograph-and those which followed-never fully diminished, even as Apollo missions followed at an incredible pace, including the first lunar landing on July 20, 1969.

Moonshots is the definitive photographic chronicle of NASA space exploration, featuring more than 200 remarkable large-format photographs from that eventful era. Though a number of these images have been reproduced in books and magazines over the years, one attribute of this incredible collection has seldom been exploited: the sheer size and resolution of the photography. Aerospace author Piers Bizony scoured NASA's archives of Hasselblad film frames to assemble the space fan's ultimate must-have book. This resulting volume extracts a stunning selection of photographs captured by astronauts using Hasselblad equipment, many of them seldom previously published. The Apollo voyages form the centerpiece of this amazing collection, but equally fabulous images from precursor Gemini missions are also featured, along with later photographs chronicling Space Shuttle missions and even the construction of the International Space Station.
