Live TV From the Moon Live TV From Orbit
The 2011 AWA Taylor Award-winning author of “Live TV From the Moon” returns with a second and intensely researched analysis of NASA’s work in developing TV for the post-Apollo missions. Relying on unprecedented assistance from many of the engineers who work for the divisions which created the TV equipment used in outer space, Dwight Steven-Boniecki continues detailing the huge effort which brought live images from earth orbit into our living rooms.
Having worked in the television industry in Australia, the United States, Great Britain and Germany for a total of nearly 25 years, his professional qualifications help complement his understanding of the pioneering television achievements of the U.S. space program. An avid space historian, he also places a great amount of detail in presenting the story with the respect it rightfully deserves, but is often unfairly denied.
He is married and lives with his wife in Cologne, Germany, working with Medien Gruppe RTL Deutschland. He regularly dazzles his work colleagues with his unusual knowledge of all things NASA television camera related. In his spare time enjoys assuming the virtual controls of Lockheed-Martin’s Prepar3d flight simulator, listening to classic rock (the Beach Boys and Harry Nilsson especially), and watching a wide variety of feature films.Photograph by Robert Enneper
