Special Guest: This week we are airing our prerecorded interview with Andy Saunders, the author and creative force behind the new book “Apollo Remastered.” Andy used his talent and expertise to digitally remaster and restore the original flight film from America’s first missions to the Moon. Universe Today’s own Nancy Atkinson (who is also a WSH alumna,) interviewed Andy this past month, and as a special treat, Nancy is joining us tonight as well.

Andy Saunders is a British author, science writer, and one of the world’s foremost experts of NASA digital restoration. His photographic work has been exhibited internationally at some of the most renowned venues, and regularly makes headlines in the world press – including BBC News, CBS News, Daily Telegraph, New York Times, USA Today, Smithsonian Magazine and Fox News, among others. His remastered images have also been utilised by NASA and reside in their own archives.
