Description

'The Moon is a Rugged Place'. An original black-and-white NASA photograph of the Moon's surface, recorded on November 28, 1969. Date of publication December 1, 1969. A news telegramme is seen on the back containing a description of the voyage. Photo size 18×21.5. Frame size 33×43 cm.

Neil Armstrong's Apollo 11 expedition landed far away from the planned area - something, however, that did not change the enourmous popularity of the participants. The next expedition (Apollo 12), on the other hand, made a precision landing November 19, 1969. The astronauts stayed on the Moon for 3.5 hours during which period they collected samples as well as handling other tasks. Almost no TV-recordings were sent back to the Earth from this voyage.
