Moon Panoramas

"On July 20 ( July 21 GMT ) 1969 the first man stepped on the moon. During the next 3 years 6 missions to the moon was made and a total of 12 astronauts walked on the moon. One of the missions Apollo 13 failed and they had to return.
During these missions thousands of images were taken, less known is that during all the missions they made image sequences which with today's computer technics can be stitched together into 360o interactive panoramas giving you the possibility to view the moon almost as you were there."

This does take awhile to load but is well worth it. I was also pleasantly surprised that audio of each mission plays while you explore the Moon.
