Neil Armstrong's face as he gazes at the Moon


In a brave move, Space Boffins Sue Nelson and Richard Hollingham attempt a podcast about pictures without any actual pictures. They are joined by science writer Andy Saunders, who’s spent years remastering images from the Apollo missions to reveal details never seen before. These include a picture of Neil Armstrong on the Moon, where his face can be clearly seen, images of the Apollo 13 crew during their disastrous flight, and candid shots of astronauts working in space and on the lunar surface. The Boffins also talk to Oxford astrophysicist and podcast host Becky Smethurst about the first images from the James Webb Space Telescope, and meet space artist Jackie Burns in her studio. It’s an (audio) visual feast!
