Project Apollo Unveils Over 8,000 Retro Photos From 1961 to 1975

One of man's greatest accomplishments was leaving the atmosphere, traveling in space, and ultimately, landing on the moon. The things that we were able to do with the same technology that is found in today's calculators, is simply amazing and inspiring.

Of course, back then, we didn't capture these monumental feats using a dSLR, but instead we used film. Enthusiast Kipp Teague, after years of researching and digging, has put together a Flickr album packed with over 8,000 photographs taken during the course of the Apollo space missions — 1961-1975. These photos are beyond belief and raw in their nature, as they're not all perfectly framed or in focus. But it's those types of images that show us exactly what it was like to be on the edge of the universe, tethered by a tiny hose. It's breathtaking in its depth.

We collected some of our favorites here, but go ahead and check out Project Apollo on Flickr for the whole shebang. It's totally worth it.
