Overview

This year is the 50th anniversary of the first time humanity set foot upon the Moon. The historical material associated with the Apollo Program is generally not well archived. NASA is not a museum. Digitizing the historical material has been a major undertaking that, once done, can enable the material to be expressed through new interactive experiences (and can also land you an unexpected job at NASA).

It turns out that the historical record of the Apollo Program can be leveraged in new ways to help NASA to plan for the next 30 years of space exploration. See how these visualizations are being applied to modern mission analogs and are contributing to plans for future space exploration.
