Astronauts have to have nerves of steel, courage in the face of danger, and aptitude as pilots, engineers, scientists, and explorers. But there’s another underrated part of being an astronaut: Photography. Some of the most interesting snapshots from astronauts are found in the new book Moonshots: 50 Years of NASA Space Exploration Seen through Hasselblad Cameras.
As the title suggests, every photo seen in Moonshots was taken by an astronaut using a Hasselblad camera going all the way back to the 1960s heyday of NASA space exploration. There are more than 200 photos in the book, almost enough to make you start questioning whether the moon landings were actually fake (note to Buzz Aldrin: I’m just kidding).
You can get a copy of Moonshots: 50 Years of NASA Space Exploration Seen through Hasselblad Cameras for yourself from Amazon right here, where copies of the book are going between $48 and $57, as of this writing.
