T Minus 8 Days and Counting

Continuing our countdown to the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11.

I love these formal portraits of the Apollo 11 astronauts. For one thing, their suits are just so white.

Armstrong and Collins are subdued or even bemused. Buzz Aldrin, ever the enthusiast, flat-out grins.

That’s mission commander Neil Armstrong above, of course. (Nice of them to put names on the fronts.)

Below we have Michael Collins (as guy-who-won’t-go-down-to-the-moon, he doesn’t seem to need as many valves and gadgets on his suit) and Smilin’ Buzz Aldrin.
