360 Video: Take a walk on the Moon with Apollo 17
Walk on the surface of the moon! It’s time for a hard truth: It’s probably too late to be an astronaut when you grow up. And even if you could, chances are you’d never set foot on the moon – we haven’t personally visited that luminous satellite in over 40 years. So, no magical moon missions for you. But thanks to NASA and the Project Apollo Archive, now you can at least feel like you’ve been. In 1972, American astronauts Eugene Cernan and Jack Schmitt were the last men to land on the moon. They brought with them an American flag, some Hasselblad cameras, giddy exuberance and a great sense of humor. They took hundreds of detailed photos of the moon’s surface, documenting their landing in exhausting detail. Last year, Project Apollo Archive made available over 8,400 unprocessed, high-resolution photos from that mission. We’ve stitched 25 of them together into an astonishing panorama that puts you on the surface of the moon!
