Hi everyone,

Happy Apollo 17 anniversary everyone.

I've updated with a ton of new features. The site has received a lot of attention this past year, and over the summer I've expanded it greatly. I worked with the Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter team at NASA Goddard  to reconstruct the landing site in 3D and add animations of the LRV traverses. I also added new interfaces (like transcript search) plus hours of previously unavailable historical footage.

The landing sequence will begin tomorrow, December 11th at 2:45PM EST if you'd like to watch it "live". Of course, if you're impatient you could just jump to that moment too:
