Sal, I would like to point out that a lot of the photographic documentation of the early launches and even the moon landing were destroyed in some sort of effort to make room for new stuff. I have been sending some of my shots to the University of Central Florida in an effort to recover lost documentation. It seems that NASA and the USAF are not as diligent than we thought. So, private documentation may be a saving grace here.
Unfortunately, this puts me on the other side for a change, as I disagree with the entire "save Kodachrome" issue. He should have shot the stuff on E6 film.
