Digging through some cool stuff one of our coworkers found this post with a fabulous set of pictures from the Apollo 11 Mission. I really enjoy them so I have posted some of it once again here in our blog for all of you to enjoy as well !! Click here for the complete "20 Forgotten Photos from the Apollo 11 Mission."
This summer marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. Everyone knows the famous photographs of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the surface of the moon. Lesser-known are the photos of what took place back on Earth. Recently, we searched the NASA images archive for some of the seldom-seen images of the 1969 lunar mission. These images show the trappings of the space age: Engineers in skinny ties, scientists with serious expressions, space buffs camping out in Detroit-built station wagons, and above all, the sublime awesomeness of being an astronaut.
July 9, 1969: A week before the launch, the astronauts reported to the flight crew training building of the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Florida. Apollo 11 astronaut Michael Collins arrived carrying a cup of coffee.
Apollo 11 astronaut Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin arrives arrival at the flight crew training building.
July 15, 1969: Collins, Armstrong and Aldrin, spoke to the press the night before launch.
Looking forward to the next generation of manned flights to the Moon!!!!! sign me up!!!!
