Conveyor Editions, in collaboration with Houseboat Press, is pleased to present Where We’ve Been, Where We’re Going, Why? by Dan Boardman and Aspen Mays. This multi-part publication is a collection of personal and public archives—family snapshots, candid photographs of the Challenger crew, astronomy plates of Halley’s Comet, and screenshots of video from the Teacher in Space project Lost Lessons. Boardman and Mays use the photographic archive as a device to draw connections between seemingly disparate events—the return of Halley's Comet, the rite of passage of the American road trip, and the Teacher in Space program, which invited the first civilian to leave the Earth. On January 28th 1986, at the launch of Challenger Mission STS-51-L, these seemingly random events aligned, giving way to the parallel histories explored within this book. In piecing together these photographic remains, Dan Boardman and Aspen Mays, visually inquire into which record is the official record.
