Apollo Newspaper Articles

This page has small articles and features from contemporary newspapers about Apollo era space missions.

Some articles in large format newspapers may have re-scanned portions, but nothing has been altered.

Most of the pictures are well known and have been reproduced elsewhere in much better resolutions, but here they are in context at the time they were released. Most of the articles relate to Apollo 11, but there are other missions included (including the first images from Mars!), and they’re in no particular order.

Sources will be given where available, but some articles were donated and have no details available. Large articles will be pdf, for others click on the pop-up image for a jpg.
