Each disc contains color and black-and-white images from NASA’s archives, contractors, and other sources. Many of these photos have never been publicly available and go far beyond any previously published collection of U.S. manned spaceflight images. In short, Retro Space Images provides a resource that simply cannot be found anywhere else.

Retro Space Images’ newest discs include an Alan Shepard disc as part of its Astronauts series (which also includes a Neil Armstrong disc), the Skylab Missions set, and the Saturn V disc, dedicated to the fabrication and launches of America’s mightiest rocket. Retro Space Images also offers an exclusive series of launch acrylics from Cape Canaveral and Kennedy Space Center.

“I’m very honored to collect images and provide them to the public,” said J.L. Pickering. “These collections are an incredible resource for space enthusiasts; some of these images are extremely difficult to find, and we offer them all in a series of CDs.”
