Space and science fans got a welcome surprise recently with the release of full-resolution scans of photography taken during NASA’s Apollo missions. While many of these images had been available in the public domain before, this release marked the first time the raw, high resolution, versions of the files were seen by many members of the public. One such viewer was inspired while browsing the photos to make a stop-motion animated video utilizing the pictures.
The result is a gorgeous journey through space, full of stunning images from one of humanity’s greatest accomplishments. When you're done, you can view the Apollo photo archive here.
