Pictures from Apollo mission to the moon over the years

All the thousands of photos taken by Apollo astronauts during visits to the moon have been posted by a lunar archivist.

More than 8,000 photos taken during moon missions from 1969 to 1972 were added to The Project Apollo’s Flickr account on Sunday in a massive update.

The photo dump is part of a process that has been going on for many years, beginning in 2004, when the Johnson Space Center began scanning Apollo film negatives that were still unprocessed.

Some of the resulting photos were used on the Project Apollo website, but demand for high quality versions ultimately prompted Kipp Teague, who runs the program, to upload everything in stunning high-res, he told The Planetary Society.
