The Worm showcases over 200 images from NASA’s archives chosen with one simple criteria: each photograph must feature ‘the worm’.

Together, these images demonstrate not only the extent to which Danne & Blackburn’s 1975 NASA Graphic Program had been implemented before being rescinded in 1992, but also the incredible achievements by NASA personnel.

The unfinished final chapter of the book will showcase the return of the worm, as it flies once again aboard a SpaceX rocket on May 30, 2020.
