Apollo Lunar Surface Panoramas

Did you know that aside from Buzz Aldrin and the late Neil Armstrong, 10 other men have walked on the moon? And they too were able to take photos! Check out these lunar panoramas taken from Missions Apollo 12 through 17 and see for yourself!

In the next three years following the first landing, NASA was able to send six more missions to the moon. Only one mission – Apollo 13 – failed to land, making it a total of 12 astronauts who were able to land and perform lunar activity.

The astronauts were equipped with modified 70mm Hasselblad 500EL cameras loaded with modified Kodak Ectachrome 160 film, and they were mounted on a special belt in their chest.
