A Walk on the Moon

NASA’s Apollo missions changed the world, and put men on the moon, which can still be considered the biggest achievement in human history. Whether you’re a space geek or not, it’s hard not to appreciate the audacity and brilliance of the Apollo-era.  Thanks to NASA’s huge public archive of images, you can now peruse any of the Apollo missions at your leisure, peering at details of lunar landers, lunar rovers, and astronauts exploring in their chunky space suits.  The idea of going back to the moon is still alive, with some experts believing that it’s a much more realistic place to visit before we send astronauts to Mars.  Click on the images below to see them in greater detail.
