Space pictures!
« on: October 01, 2016, 03:26:26 AM »
I noticed that there wasn't a topic about something like this yet, so I will start with what's possibly the coolest thing I've seen from NASA in a while.  :D

NASA got fed up with all the "Moon landing was faked" conspiracy theories, so they released over 10,000 pictures from the Apollo Space Program. All of them are awesome.

Well, here's the pictures!

This is a really interesting thread, Strifer.  Thanks for creating it.

No problem. Space exploration amazes me. Like how my country somehow managed to land people on the moon. I mean, the moon is thousands of miles away from us, and it moves constantly as well. Calculating everything alone for Apollo 11 must've been a nightmare.

It must have, but I'm sure the Engineers enjoyed what they did.

I also love space and Astronomy too Strifer and have Celestron Nexstar Telescope, but its computer tripod broke yet I still have the telescope.

Cool! I had a telescope too a few years ago, but I never used it. It wasn't that powerful to begin with.
