Never-Before Seen Historic Photos Of Apollo Missions

views: 1659

NASA just released over 13,000 unprocessed and never-before seen images from its Apollo missions.  This treasure trove of pictures is a great opportunity for a new generation to appreciate the historical significance of the Apollo missions.

The collection consists of 102 albums starting with Apollo 7, the first manned spaceflight mission in 1968, to Apollo 17, the last lunar mission in 1972.  Breathtaking pictures of earth from space, the moon’s surface, iconic moonwalks, the American flag on the moon and the day to day activities of the astronauts all help us relive the drama and excitement of the beginnings of space travel.

All photos are available at Project Apollo Archive in Flickr and all of them are in public domain.
