Incredible High-Res Photos of The Apollo Missions Have Just Been Uploaded to Flickr

Never-before-seen images of the Moon landing.

You may think you’ve seen photos of the Moon landing before, but you haven’t like this. The 9,200 high-resolution images posted to the Project Apollo Archive were taken during every manned mission to the Moon, both on the way there and back.

 

These aren’t just photos of the Moon’s surface either. The entire film reels were uploaded so you can see the blurry outtakes along with some candid shots of astronauts shaving while onboard.

Scrolling through the photos, it feels like watching someone else’s vacation - but this one just takes place on a spaceship.

The project’s lead, Kipp Teague, told The Planetary Society that the collection includes every single photo taken on the Moon’s surface, along with those from the voyage there and back. His Apollo Archives project uploaded the unprocessed versions of the original NASA scans into Flickr albums organised by mission.

We’ve selected a few of our favourites from each mission, but it’s worth checking out the entire collection on Flickr.
