Apollo 11’s Magic Window; Faking the Earth

by P W Laurie

A note regarding this version

This work was a much longer piece in its original form until a decision was taken to prune it to suit a booklet publication. After further deliberation, it was decided for convenience’s sake to publish to the internet.

Making it available to a subscriber-only audience is in keeping with what was initially intended for the project, and is the first part of a rebuild that will see the addition of a couple of chapters-worth of material about the very oddity of being able to fix the thousands of miles distant Earth in a tiny window from a camera positioned at the back of the Apollo 11 Command Module, and the apparent – anomalous – size of the planet as seen by the crew.
