Recently, longtime NASA enthusiast Kipp Teague, compiled and released a collection of over 13,000 hi-resolution photos from the various Apollo space missions that ran from 1961 to 1972. President Kennedy had declared his goal of putting a man on the Moon and bringing him back by the end of the 1960’s, and the Apollo missions succeeded in doing just that while capturing our imaginations in the process. These photos give never-before-seen insight into their amazing journeys.
