Out of this world

We choose to go to the Moon in this decade [and these other things]....not because they are easy, but because they are hard; because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one we intend to win...

Last week, NASA added over 10 000 photos taken by astronauts to their Flickr page: the Project Apollo Archive.
I have a wonderful book called Full Moon which has plenty of these images, on glossy paper, taken with the finest Hasselblad cameras and capturing the lunar landscape and the grittiness of those early expeditions to the moon. What amazing memories the people involved must have of those times...
