Taub was head photographer at NASA from the time the agency got its start in 1958. Charged with documenting NASA’s work for publicity and posterity, he was one of the last people to see the astronauts before liftoff, earning the nickname “Two More Taub” for his insistence, always, on snapping just a couple more shots.
As NASA's first senior photographer, Bill Taub covered every major agency event from the beginning of the Mercury project through the end of Apollo, giving the public a firsthand look at what NASA was about during those early days. Bill Taub died on Feb. 20, 2010. He was 86 years old.
