Ben Feist - Apollo in Real Time
Ben Feist is a Spaceflight Data Researcher and Apollo Historian at NASA Goddard Space Flight Center.
His Apollo in Real Time web project is an enormous undertaking to present the lunar missions exactly as they happened with fully restored images, audio and film footage, synced and time-coded for the first time so that they can be experienced exactly as it happened, 50 years later.
Originally an after-hours hobby, his work became central to the recent Apollo 11 documentary feature film and resulted in a job offer at NASA. In the lead-up to the 50th anniversary of Apollo 13, which will go live on the website next week, he joined the MTF Podcast to talk about his work.
