Astrophotography from 1908 — 1919


These images were taken about 100 years ago. I can’t even describe how much respect I have for early astronomers.

"An astronaut’s life is one of preparation and simulation, and training, and support from the ground, and anticipation, visualization, and very, very seldom - almost never - is an astronaut’s life about flying in space."
- Canadian Astronaut Chris Hadfield; former Commander of the International Space Station

Beyond Earth Stephen Di Donato

"After recently finding old science fiction magazines dating back from the 1980’s, it reignited my childhood memories of my curiosity of our solar system and of limitless imagination. I began researching heavily on NASA missions and came to the realization that the late 1950’s to mid-1970’s were exciting times for new discoveries, for real photographic images of planets and for limitless possibilities. This gave me the incentive to start a personal project named Beyond Earth."

One of the legends about this film was that Ed Wood used hubcaps as flying saucers. When really they were made from cheap model flying saucer kits purchased at a local toy store. But the “hubcap myth” was such a good story that Wood continued to claim it in interviews.(x)
