NASA releasing hi-res Apollo photos

via Bad Astronomy

Finally, some good news from NASA. Arizona State University is running a project to scan all the lunar images from the Apollo missions and release them over the Internet. The file size for the original raw scans is 1.3 GB, but for the sake of practicality, they have resized versions available as well (most computers will not display 1.3 GB images).

Currently, the only photos available are 5 metric frames from the Apollo 15 mission, but expect more to come over the course of the next 3 years allotted for this project.
