Description


Extremely rare second-generation 70-mm positive film roll from Magazine S of the Apollo 11 Hasselblad camera, containing 126 of the most iconic images from the first lunar-landing mission. Wound on a yellow Kodak holder and measuring 3.5″ in diameter, the roll consists of NASA images catalogued as AS11-40-5844 through AS11-40-5970, with the first section of film marked “Heads, MAG-S, Apollo-11.” The roll features photographs taken by Commander Neil Armstrong and Lunar Module Pilot Buzz Aldrin during their historic two-and-a-half-hour lunar EVA at Tranquility Base on July 20, 1969, with color images including: moments from inside the Lunar Module Eagle immediately prior to Armstrong leaving the spacecraft; Armstrong's first photograph after taking his historic first steps; Aldrin descending the LM ladder; Aldrin standing next to the American flag; the famous ‘Moon Man’ image of Aldrin in a full-length pose, his visor showing a reflection of Armstrong; and various bootprint images, shots of the LM, the lunar plaque, and panoramas of the desolate lunar surface. In fine condition, with some old tape residue at the start. Consignor notes that the film roll was acquired from Terry Slezak, a member of the decontamination team at the Manned Space Center's lunar receiving lab, who was in charge of processing the film brought back from the Apollo moon landings.
