Apollo Revisited.

Regular readers will be aware of my childhood interest in space exploration.

During the Apollo programme, the astronauts took many photographs. Some of these were in the form of panoramic sequences, which have now, some thirty plus years later, have been digitally scanned and stitched together into 360 degree quicktime panoramas. The source of the newly scanned images is here at the Apollo Image Gallery.

The resulting panoramic views (with sound), of the surface of the moon are breathtakingly beautiful. (via kottke)

I do hope we go back to the moon, soon.
