NASA Just Uploaded 8400 Photos Of Moon Missions On The Internet Today( We Present Some Of Them)

I guess you've seen the images from the Apollo mission before but now 8,400 images have been uploaded on Flickr at a resolution of 1800 dpi from Nasa's moon mission. The process was too long, according to Kipp Teague, who runs the Project Apollo Archive. "Around 2004, Johnson Space Center began re-scanning the original Apollo Hasselblad's camera film magazines, and Eric Jones and I began obtaining TIFF versions of these new scans on DVD," Teague tells The Planetary Society. "These images were processed for inclusion on our websites, including adjusting color and brightness levels, and reducing the images in size to about 1000 dpi for the high-resolution versions."

1. NASA sent the astronauts to the moon for scientific exploration that too with handful of Hasselblad cameras.

2. Hasseblads capture impressive details- the film they use is three- four times as large as 35mm- and so much of that translates in these new images.
