Nasa. LARGE FORMAT. Apollo 11 mission. Rare. Historic photograph. Just half an hour ago, Neil Armstrong became the 1st human to walk on the moon. He was quickly followed by his crewmate Buzz Aldrin, and the two men immediately set to work deploying the various scientific instruments needed to study the lunar environment. Neil Armstrong's first photographs were of a 360° panorama of the lunar surface, taken as soon as he set foot on the Moon. This was to keep a precise scientific record of the lunar landscape in case an emergency warranted the immediate departure of the lunar module. Once Buzz Aldrin was on the Moon, the two men set to work. This photograph is the first that Neil Armstrong took of Buzz Aldrin. It is therefore the first historic image of a human figure on an extraterrestrial body. The instrument Buzz Aldrin deploys is a solar wind meter, part of which will be returned to Earth to analyze the particles deposited on it during the mission. July 20, 1969.
Later chromogenic print. Numbering on front. Legend on back label. 40.6x40.6cm with margins.
