NASA Has Released Thousands of High-Res Apollo Mission Photos

NASA has just posted thousands of photos taken by Apollo astronauts during their visits to the moon.

The space research agency’s Project Apollo Archive made a massive update its Flickr account Sunday, adding a trove of more than 8,000 photos taken during Moon missions from 1969 to 1972.

The photo dump is part of a years-long process, beginning in 2004, when the Johnson Space Center began re-scanning the original Apollo film rolls.
