    'Merica! R.I.P Mr. Armstrong

  • Tim

    So fucking fake.

    • Patrick

      You are a moron.

    • Wisti

      seriously?…

    • mongoose5271

      You are a fucktard.

  • jason

    didnt happen

    • etg

      Moronic comments such as yours speak distinctly of the mental poverty from which you suffer..do the world a favor and don't reproduce.

  • Sam Ross

    Thanks for posting this awesome set of photos. My dad is in photo #9.

    Wait! What the….? Kevin Costner?

    • Matador

      In case you're unaware, that's Gemini 7 / Gemini 12 / Apollo 8 / Apollo 13 astronaut Jim Lovell.

  • Buford_Justice

    #50 Home looks sooo far away, I couldnt imagine how that must feel

    • Debbie

      that is what I was thinking when viewing these pics

    • Alan

      SCARY.

  • john lear

    #83 i thought you couldn't see stars. but it looks like 1 in the reflection of his face shield. #46 what is that dome next to the crater?

    • Guest

      That's the other spacecraft in 46.

    • B_Rad

      That's the Lunar module as seen from the Command Module where Mike Collins stayed for the duration of the mission.

  • Enginerd

    Again, such an honor to have shaken your hand Neil. Boiler Up!

  • crazy

    #22 More computational power, physical storage and RAM in your cell phone, than in this picture

    • grillium falcon

      scary to think my kids Leapster is technically superior the resources they had at hand.

  • Jens

    excellent, thanks! Fun fact: no one born after 1935 has walked on the moon.

    • J Dubya

      I think the list of people who have walked on the moon is small enough on it's own.

  • pufffdragon

    #38 Whats my fleshlight doing up there

  • Guest

    #31 is a Gemini launch

  • Nick

    To those of you who think the landing was fake, you are retarded. Hundreds of scientists from around the world have studied the rocks brought back. You don't think they would have said something by now. They have no reason to contribute to an American hoax.

    • Badman

      Except for they're American too. Hmm… funding also comes to mind… but you're probably right, money is usually never a reason and everything is usually what it seems.

      • Wisti

        A person doesn't go through all that schooling to become a scientist simply for the money. You might have one or two with a family that needs the money and will keep their mouth shut, but do you really think every one of them would?

  • Badman

    Seems to me that there's some missing shadowing on #81

    • GB_

      Mythbusters busted the shadow conspiracy theory a while back. Has to do with the lack of atmosphere affecting how light falls upon & is reflected off the moon's surface.

      • Badman

        Actually, the mythbusters explanation had to do with two different light soures…

  • Badman

    … and totaly F'd up on #51. Loook at his feet. Met with shadow in the reflection, but not in the picture.

    • A BiPolar Guy

      You have quite an imagination, as well as an inability to undrstand what you see in this photo.

      • Badman

        I guess my imagination can't clearly understand why the shadow of the person standing there falls backwards in the visor but forward on the ground. I didn't come to this post disbelieving. It just shows to me clearly that there is more to the story than what was presented

  • Dan

    #19 I would have been terrified. These guys are probably the bravest who ever lived.

  • Dee

    That was a lot more than 30 photos…

  • Canucks_Rule

    #26 – amazing.

    #65 – cronkite's reaction pretty much summed it up.

    For all the BC'ers that visit this site daily, fired up a new twitter strictly for all the West Coast Canadian Chivers & Chivettes!!

    Give it a follow. Gonna be re-posting the best pix from the daily threads on this site with my own twist. –> https://twitter.com/KCCOVancity

  • WaikikiWayne

    Greatest accomplishment of the 20th Century. Awesome, just awesome.

  • Huge

    Pretty good special effects for back then.

  • nivks

    We salute to leagend…………… miss u realy sir ♥♡♥

  • freddy boy

    Ignoring the waving flag question, I can't even imagine what size testicles that would take to go the freaking moon. Testicular Level: Immeasurable.

    • Escelante

      The flag isn't waving, it's being held up by an arm that's clearly visible. You people know that we can see the landing sites on the moon from Earth, right?

  • Chester

    Nice!

  • Wisti

    #56 is truly astounding and puts it all into perspective
