For those of you who love photography, astronomy and history, basically nerds like me, you will love what I have to show you here. I will keep it brief since as you will see, you’ll need all the time you can get to go through this treasure-trove of photos. What I am showing you today is this very comprehensive archive of newly scanned Apollo Mission photos created and maintained by Kipp Teague, an administrative data systems specialist from Lynchburg College, Virginia. This glorious archive is called the „Project Apollo Archive“.
Thankfully from the looks of it, Lynchburg College doesn’t need much administrative data systems specialist work done. Either that or Mr. Teague doesn’t ever sleep, as the amount of work that must have gone into making such a huge archive consisting of 20 megapixel scans (big, big pictures in scientific terms) is hard to fathom. However he somehow managed it. Kipp Teague to my mind is truly a rockstar in the world of photography, astronomy and history preservation for doing this. ***Warning*** viewing this archive is highly addictive and neither Kipp Teague nor I take responsibility for redundancy or divorce as a result of time spent viewing the archive.
Kipp Teague I salute you!
