Is This the Face of a Man Who Just Walked on the Moon?

Why yes, yes it is! The Project Apollo Archive has just uploaded thousands of hi-res photos into their Flickr account, including this endearing shot of Neil Armstrong fresh from his moonwalk. There’s also a Facebook page which you should all go and like and look at forever. Kipp Teague, the founder of the Archive, has uploaded over 8,000 photos so far, and is hoping to get all 13,000 images up soon, and we can’t wait to see every single one of them!

The Apollo 11 astronauts take a shot of the first footprints on the moon as they start their trip home:


And here’s a fantastic shot of Apollo 13’s safe splashdown in the Pacific Ocean!


And here’s one of our favorites, a gorgeous shot of the Earthrise over the moon:

And another one, of Earthset!
