The Apollo program was a series of manned space flight missions that was undertaken by NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) from 1961 to 1972. A total of six missions achieved a successful landing on the moon!

These photos were published by the archive project of the Apollo space program.

Many of these photos were taken from the missions of Apollo 7 in 1968 to the final mission of Apollo 17 in the early 1970’s and included all of the successful lunar landings. The official archive website of the Apollo program opened in 1999 and is called the “Project Apollo Archive”.
