The photographs that came from the Apollo missions have become some of the most famous and influential ever taken but these were done with mostly just one make of camera that only came about due to one of the early Mercury astronauts taking a low price commercial camera on board a mission to photo what they saw. So this is the story of how Hasselblad, a small Swedish manufacturer became the pivotal player in showing the world what it was really like in space and on the moon and our place in space.
