A rare front bodied portrait of Buzz Aldrin, taken by fellow astronaut Neil Armstrong is one of the most iconic images from the Apollo 11 mission. The reflection of Armstrong in this image makes it exceptionally rare. It was so breath-taking that it featured on the front cover of Time Magazine.<br />
<br />
Some of the most historic photographs chronicling the history of man’s exploration of space, from early expeditions, to some of the latter trips of the 1990s will be sold at auction.  Over 600 images, many of which capture historic moments, such as the first humans in space, the first spacewalk and the first moon landing will be auctioned today on March 17th 2021 as part of the Space Exploration Photography and Ephemera auction by Dreweatts.<br />
