The brave astronauts who risked their lives to venture into the unknown have been hailed as the heroes of the space race.
But the incredible infrastructure that sent these men and women into orbit has largely been forgotten, leaving haunting reminders of one of humanity’s greatest achievements.
For the best part of half a century, one photographer has been on an adventure across the US to capture abandoned Nasa sites before they are lost to their environment.
Often overlooked in early space history, the Gemini program provided the basic research for many critical steps in proving that men could survive long duration flights in space and testing the orbital rendezvous procedures which would eventually be used in the Apollo program.
In 1998, the launch ring at Complex 34 was sandblasted and painted to protect it from weathering.
