Film Magazine, Hasselblad, 70mm, Apollo 11

     

During the Apollo 11 mission, Magazine N was used in the command module from just after launch until the spacecraft entered lunar orbit. The color images on this magazine include images of Earth, the crew as it travelled to the Moon and prepared the lunar module, as well as the lunar surface. Hasselblad cameras and magazines, selected for their reliability and high quality, were used on all lunar missions. The magazines were easily switched out at any time, allowing crew members change between color and black and white film at a moments notice.

NASA transferred this film magazine to the Museum in 1970.
