The astronauts of the Apollo missions took 70mm Hasselblad cameras with them when they landed on the moon. The stunning pictures these cameras enabled them to take are carefully cataloged and available for all to see online, but youll have to look harder if you want to find one of the cameras themselves. The camera was used by astronaut Jim Irwin to take 299 pictures of the moons surface during the Apollo 15 mission in 1971, and is expected to fetch between 150,000 and 200,000 euros ($200,000–270,000) at auction in Vienna.
