Too cool

I was tootling along the interwebs and stumbled across this too cool article at the UK Daily Mail about NASA releasing to Flikr more than eight thousand awesome, never-before seen pictures of the Apollo missions to the moon.

That is too cool.

The images — many of them taken by the chest-mounted Hasselblad cameras that were part of their space suits — are some of the most stunning pictures of the Apollo missions I have ever seen.

If you’re anything like me the Apollo missions are a part of childhood. I was six years old when Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon. I remember my parents getting my brother and me out of our beds way past our bedtimes to watch Neil Armstrong’s “giant leap for mankind.”

So I got quite a kick out these pictures. I think you will to.
