Reviews

"These 'Moonshots and Snapshots' provide a new perspective on NASA's Project Apollo. . . . Bisney and Pickering don't just focus on the iconic images that we all recognize; instead, they opened their lens to the machinery behind the missions (computers and other hardware), the astronauts' pranks, and the rank-and-file NASA workers who made it all happen."--Modern Notion Daily


"Pairs many previously unpublished images from Pickering's collection with captions that identify many NASA, military, and contract workers."--Quest
"In resurrecting many obscure photos the authors have provided a valuable, and highly desirable, compendium of outstanding pictures from an age when each flight saw the release of perhaps fewer than one-hundred stock shots."--Spaceflight
"John Bisney and J. L. Pickering have assembled a wonderful collection of rarely seen photographs that true space buffs will enjoy. The captions are worth their weight in space-fact gold."--Richard W. Orloff, coauthor of Apollo: The Definitive Sourcebook
"If you think you've seen every cool photo from the pioneering days of NASA, think again! J. L. Pickering and John Bisney have combed the archives of photojournalists who covered the Mercury, Gemini, Apollo, and Skylab missions to create an extraordinary visual record that will delight and surprise even the most hard-core space enthusiast."--Andrew Chaikin, author of A Man on the Moon: The Voyages of the Apollo Astronauts

"Together, [Spaceshots and Snapshots of Projects Mercury and Gemini and Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo] are a treat for any space buff and, for the true believers, a reminder that even greater journeys may lie just ahead."--American Scientist


"J. L. Pickering and John Bisney have done it again! . . . Moonshots and Snapshots of Project Apollo comes with SpaceFlight Insider's highest recommendation. It is an excellent follow-on to Spaceshots and Snapshots of Projects Mercury and Gemini: A Rare Photographic History as well as an exceptional addition to any space enthusiast's library."--SpaceFlight Insider
