Terukazu Fujisawa, founder of Japans Yodobashi Camera retail chain, is the proud new owner of a unique piece of photographic history: a Hasselblad 500 camera that was used on the moon during the Apollo 15 mission in 1971. Though it isnt the first Hasselblad to reach the moon — Neil Armstrong had one with him on the first manned lunar mission in 1969 — this auction item is special in the fact that its returned to Earth. As Hasselblads website explains, the other cameras used on the surface of the moon have been left there due to their bulk and weight, with the Apollo astronauts keeping only the film magazines.
