In 1968, The Apollo program launched its first manned mission into low Earth orbit. The following year, the Apollo 11 mission brought humans to the Moon. The historic program pushed the limits of science, technology and our imaginations. And a large part of that was due to the photographs that were taken by astronauts. From the candid zero-gravity shots to thepale blue dot, pictures from the Apollo mission changed how the public saw the universe.
Now, 47 years later, Kipp Teague, a space enthusiast and archivist in Virginia, just posted a massive amount — 8,400 in total — of previously unreleased high-resolution photos.
We’ve looked through every single image and culled the best of the best from every mission.
For those that wish to dive into the complete collection, it’s organized by mission and film roll for easy viewing.
