On July 16, 1969, Apollo 11 lifted off for the Moon and into history. Artist Russ Arasmith’s vision of Apollo was a potent vision of the program that shows in the works he created. Arasmith worked for the Los Angeles Times for 32 years and served as Editorial Art Director for 17 of those years. He created all the space drawings for the Times. The drawings were the result of extensive briefings he attended at various NASA centers. All were done before the fact on the same schedule with the individual missions involved. The articles and the drawing were run in the Los Angeles Times on the day the actual event occurred. The Times Syndicate then distributed the art work to 300 newspapers all over the world. Arasmith retired from the Los Angeles Times in 1992. He passed away in 2018, leaving a body of work for posterity.

1969年7月16日，阿波罗11号飞往月球并载入史册。艺术家Russ Arasmith对阿波罗计划的设想在他的作品中得到了很好的体现。Arasmith在洛杉矶时报工作了32年，其中17年担任编辑艺术总监。他为这个时代创作了所有的太空图画。这些图纸是他在多个NASA中心参加的大量简报的结果。所有这些都是在相同的时间表之前完成的，涉及各个任务。《洛杉矶时报》(Los Angeles Times)在事件发生的当天刊登了这篇文章和这幅画。《纽约时报》随后将这些艺术作品分发给了世界各地的300家报纸。1992年，他从《洛杉矶时报》退休。他于2018年去世，为后人留下了大量作品。
