Apollo 7 launch

The launch of Apollo 7, the first manned Apollo mission, October 11, 1968.

A C-135 aircraft, flying at more than 35,000 feet, photographed the launch of the Apollo 7 space vehicle. The image, taken from the ocean side and at such a high altitude, gave the appearance that the launch was from beside the VAB.

Dry Lights, by Xavier Chassaing, lies somewhere between a site-specific installation and a performance, where choreographed lights meet organic landscapes.
