Eleven years ago this month the first steps were taken to create Spacecraft Films. When we opened our site on February 1, 2002, we were well on the way to releasing material on Apollo 11 that hadn't been seen in 30 years. For the first time we made this material available on DVD.
Since that time we've made available not only the Apollo Moonwalks, but all of the Apollo missions up to Skylab, as well as Mercury, Gemini, launch vehicles and special subjects, applying the same passion for the material we've always shown - the most extensive material available anywhere on the US Space Program, presented without a media filter - so it can be relived and studied as it happened.
In addition to making this material available, the production of the Spacecraft Films DVDs has left behind new, digital transfers of this material, most of it through both NASA and the National Archives. As technology improved along the way we also began creating and leaving behind HD transfers of this archival material for future use. We stopped counting several years ago, but at the time we had made new digital transfers of hundreds of thousands of feet of archival film on the history of the US in space. In addition to the access we've provided, it is this refreshment of the archive of which we are most proud.
We're working through the Space Shuttle missions now, and plan to create both a Skylab and an Apollo/Soyuz set in order to complete the collection. As we move into 2013, several of our special subjects DVDs are running low on inventory and we don't plan to reprint them. We're offering them at special prices prior to the holidays. If you've been interested in adding these sets to your collection, now is the time to do so.
And thank you for your support of Spacecraft Films.
