Lunar rover camera after departure of the Apollo 17 LM.

After liftoff of Lunar module "Challenger" (14 December 1972) the color television camera mounted on the front of the Lunar Rover could be remotely operated by Mission Control. This allowed far better television coverage of the EVA than the earlier missions.

Extracted and constructed with individual pictures of TV camera.

Apollo 8 before TLI (Dec 21, 1968).

Apollo 8, Earth view before TLI (Dec 21, 1968). Panorama extracted from individual pictures of 16 mm camera. The three-astronaut crew Commander Frank Borman, Command Module Pilot James Lovell, and Lunar Module Pilot William Anders became the first humans to travel beyond low Earth orbit, the first to see Earth as a whole planet, the first to directly see the far side of the Moon, and then the first to witness Earth-rise.

I know I posted a compliment of your work back in January, but I have to say again how much I admire what you do. It must be an interesting challenge to just find movie footage or photo series that are appropriate for "meshing." Then actually putting them together must take some real technical know-how and effort.

Explorer 1 was the first satellite launched by the United States when it was sent into space on January 31, 1958.

The primary science instrument on Explorer 1 was a cosmic ray detector designed to measure the radiation environment in Earth orbit. the U.S. Army Ballistic Missile Agency was directed to launch a satellite using its Jupiter C rocket developed under the direction of Dr. Wernher von Braun.

Once in space this experiment, provided by Dr. James Van Allen of the University of Iowa, revealed a much lower cosmic ray count than expected (NASA).

In case the picture is oriented correctly (if it is not the mirror image) then Young seems to sit in the left-hand seat, i.e. commander seat which means the flight is Gemini 10.

The Wasserfall Ferngelenkte FlaRakete (Waterfall Remote-Controlled A-A Rocket) was a World War II guided surface-to-air missile developed at Peenemünde, Germany. In spite of considerable development, Wasserfall never became operational.

Launches of captured V-2 rockets in the USA (1946-1952).
German V-2 rockets captured by the United States Army at the end of World War II were used as sounding rockets to carry scientific instruments into the earth's upper atmosphere at White Sands Missile Range (WSMR) for a program of atmospheric and solar investigation through the late 1940s.

That picture of "Orion's" descent stage looks quite alarming: like a giant spider about to pounce at you out of the screen!
