Reviews

"The Apollo program was the most ambitious exploration program in history. A very important part of the lunar flights was the documentation of those flights in pictures. One of the only things remaining now of the lunar flights is the photographic evidence accumulated during the flights. Through Astronaut Eyes explains the history of space photography in an interesting and informative way. I encourage you to read about and understand what we were able to accomplish so many years ago."
