Space and photography fans rejoice!
Unlike the images included in the Project Apollo Archive and the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, the new Flickr set has not been processed.
The Apollo astronauts who landed on the moon between 1969 and 1972 did so with chest-mounted Hasselblad cameras so they could record every piece of history.
Armed with a number of Hasselblad cameras, the astronauts were encouraged to take photographs while working on their scientific experiments en route to the Earth’s biggest satellite.
An online UFO hunter has discovered a freakish image in a NASA photo taken 43 years ago by Apollo 17, the final manned mission to the moon. The painstaking process to restore the prints began in 2004 when the Johnson Space Center began re-scanning the original Apollo film rolls.
He said that since first launching the archive he received many questions about them, prompting him to reprocess it at an unedited higher-resolution – the images are 1,800 DPI. A quick warning, you could be viewing these images for hours!
The Project Apollo Archive is a storehouse that has been created by Kipp Teague in 1999 and includes unprocessed versions of the original NASA photo scans.
