Thousands Of New Apollo Mission Images Released

Including stunning shots of the moon, Earth, Neil Armstrong & Buzz Aldrin

From mankind’s first steps on the moon to astronauts eating space food, there’s a treasure trove of never-before-seen images from the Apollo missions.

The gallery of 8,400 images was uploaded to Flickr by a team of space enthusiasts.

During the 1960s and 70s, astronauts took the images on the moon’s surface using Hasselblad cameras strapped to their chests.

Kipp Teague, creator of the Project Apollo archive, said the galleries were NASA’s Apollo imagery “as it was originally provided in its raw, high-resolution and unprocessed form.”

Some of the most compelling pictures are of Buzz Aldrin descending onto the moon’s surface, taken by Neil Armstrong.

Living legend Buzz Aldrin is coming to Australia in November for An Evening With Buzz Aldrin: Mission To Mars. Buzz will take audiences through space history and into the future, a future beyond planet Earth, as well as reliving his incredible missions like the historic Apollo 11 Moon landing with Neil Armstrong.
