Only NASA could turn photography into literal rocket science. As Reddit user truetofictionpoints out in a resource-rich post, NASA meticulously decided upon a number of factors that determined the fate of the space-bound Hasselblads and the resulting images.
When Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong separated from the Command Module of the Apollo 11 mission, their moonscape-destined Lunar Module had two Hasselblad cameras in it. Each served a distinct purpose and each had a number of features purpose-built for their individual endeavors. Before we break down the differences though, we’ll establish what the two models had in common.
Both built around the Hasselblad 500EL body, these two cameras featured a mostly-automated process, thanks largely in part to the electronic motor. The astronauts needed only to set the distance, aperture, and shutter speed. Once the shutter was pressed, the frame was exposed, the film was wound to the next frame, and the shutter was reset.
Other features present to these two cameras was the use of special-designed locks for the film magazines, levers for the aperture and distance settings and featured a simple sighting ring, rather than a reflex mirror viewfinder.

Nintendo will be streaming Hyrule Warriors with Miyamoto and Aonuma
Nintendo will be hosting a live stream of Hyrule Warriors on Japanese streaming site NicoNico this Thursday. While the stream will be entirely in Japanese and showcase the game, some notable appearances from Nintendo developers include Shigeru Miyamoto, Eiji Aonuma, and Koei Tecmo’s president Yoichi Erikawa. The stream will start at 2pm in Japan, but for the rest of the world that’s 1am EST/ 10pm PST.
If you want to see some of the action of Hyrule Warriors, you’ll be able to view the stream here. There’s no telling what Nintendo plans to show, but we suspect it will be several of the new characters they’ve revealed since E3, including Sheik, Ruto, Darunia and more.
