Today, on Modern Notion Daily: we get a rare look at the manned space flights of Project Apollo. Our guests are John Bisney and J.L. Pickering, coauthors of Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo: A Rare Photographic Look (September 2015, University of New Mexico Press). For more than four decades, Pickering has been collecting 8″x10″ images of manned space flights, and he now boasts more than 100,000 images in the collection. He and Bisney have combed through this archive and threaded a narrative through it to give us a deeper sense of the work that went into the Apollo missions.
