Vintage Photos That'll Rekindle Your NASA Nostalgia

Feb 16 2014 - 8:07am

In 2011, the NASA space shuttle program shut its doors for good. Luckily, there are photographs to help a program that was once out of this world live on for years to come. London's First Floor Gallery recently kicked off an exhibition to showcase more than 100 NASA photographs dating from 1964 to 1983. From the historic Apollo images to the first earthrise witnessed by human eyes, this vintage collection is a must see for our friends across the pond!

If you want to get a sneak peek of what the exhibition has to offer, flip through the full digital catalog [1] now. For All Mankind: Vintage NASA Photographs 1964-1983 [2] is set to run through Feb. 22. Scroll on to travel through space and time with retro NASA and see our five favorite picks from the show.
