Apollo lunar surface imageOver forty years ago the NASA Apollo programme landed the first of a dozen astronauts on the Moon under the full glare of the world media spotlight.  At its height the Apollo programme employed 400 000 people, and the Moon rocks and data brought back provided the material for thousands of scientific papers.  The missions were watched closely around the world, particularly by the USSR who were in competition for the same goal, and who publicly acknowledged the success of the mission.  Members of the British Interplanetary Society, which has been a great proponent of Moon exploration since the 1930s, celebrated this magnificent achievement.

However, questions have been asked by some who see apparent anomalies in the Apollo photography.  Marcus Allen, who trained as a photographer in London in the 1960s, where he became familiar with Hasselblad cameras, will be presenting a selection of anomalies he has perceived in the Apollo lunar surface images. He will be followed by BIS Member and freelance space presenter Jerry Stone who will respond to the points raised by Mr Allen.

Biographies

Marcus Allen now lives in Sussex where he finds the time to publish an International magazine while pursuing his interest in photography and a garden rapidly escaping his control.

Jerry Stone runs Spaceflight UK.  He has given presentations on astronomy and space exploration all over the UK and abroad since the time of the first Moon landings.  He also presents space workshops for schools where questions on the Apollo Missions are often being raised.
