NASA have uploaded thousands of unseen Apollo mission photographs to the image hosting site Flickr. 

More than 13,000 hi res images have been uploaded to the site, taken across every manned Apollo mission between 1961 and 1972-including Neil Armstrong and Apollo 11′s Moon landing in 1969.

The images were given to the founder of the Project Apollo Archive Kipp Teague who began painstakingly restoring and digitizing the images back in 2004. 

Many of the photographs were taken by the Astronauts themselves using specially-adapted Hasselblad cameras.
