So, it’s date night and you don’t know what to do with your main squeeze. Why not take him or her or them to the moon via a web browser?
Using public domain media from NASA, some enterprising folks have constructed an cool site about the Apollo 11 lunar landing, allowing you to experience the event from a unique POV perspective.
Original audio feeds, which you’ll hear play back in real time, have also been converted to text feeds. You’ll also get choppy but real-time video of the landing, and you’ll even get all the Star Trek: The Original Series-era bleeps and bloops. You can pause the whole show with a single click.
It’s great stuff for space enthusiasts. Check it out:
(Side note: Having this audio feed playing in the background at work will make you look, like, way more important to your colleagues. “Radar, flight looks good. Okay, we got data back!”)
