Project Apollo Archive

The exploration of space is, let’s face it, utterly fascinating and though the number of missions seems to have tailed off a bit over the last few decades, we’re now able to revel in the awesomeness of the early Apollo space missions now that the good chaps at NASA have released the Project Apollo Archive which is nothing short of breathtaking.

Consisting of an archive of over 12,000 photos taken between the missions of Apollo 7 and Apollo 17, there are some truly mind blowing images from space to take in, including some hitherto unseen shots of Neil Armstrong et all landing on the moon.

If you’ve an interest in space travel, and even if you don’t truth be told, this magnificent series of photos will be a real time hog as you pore over the shots from these various missions. Check out some of our favourites here at Coolector HQ below:

If you’re up for feeling pretty insignificant in the grand scheme of things the truly stunning series of photos from the NASA Apollo archives will definitely assist you in this. We’ve been left thoroughly agog by the sheer scale of imagery that has been released on the Flickr stream of NASA and dare say the next few days and, most likely weeks, will see us gravitating back towards this miraculous images.
