|Ed Hengeveld is a space flight historian who lives with his wife and son in the Netherlands, where he works for Dutch television news. He has written numerous articles for magazines such as Spaceflight and Quest, as well as for various Dutch magazines.|
|His interest in space flight began with the Apollo-8 mission around the moon in 1968 and has grown ever since. In 1981 he was at the Kennedy Space Centre to witness the launch of STS-1 and he was also present at the Dryden Flight Research Centre when Columbia landed there two days later. While at Dryden, he also met various people involved in the X-15 and lifting body programs, resulting in a special interest in this area of flight research.|
|Ed is a member of the British Interplanetary Society. In his spare time he enjoys painting, especially scenes from the Apollo program. His paintings have been published in various magazines around the world and his portrait of the twelve moon-walking astronauts ("Moonwalkers") earned him praise from Apollo-12 lunar module pilot Al Bean, who is himself an artist. Moonwalkers is now an official NASA photograph assigned NASA No. S95-14663.|
