On July 20, 1969, NASA astronaut Neil Armstrong took "one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind," and became the first man on the moon. Now, Project Apollo Archive is helping people re-live that historic memory and more, in high-definition, with its collection of over 10,000 images from NASA's historic Apollo missions.
