Previously unseen photos from the Nasa Apollo missions have been released as part of the Project Apollo Archive. More than 8,000 images from the missions that took place in the 1960s and 1970s have been uploaded to a dedicated Flickr page for public viewing. The archive was created by Kipp Teague in 1999 as an online reference source and repository of images relating to the manned lunar landing programme. He has now uploaded 8,400 unprocessed versions of the original Nasa photo scans.

He said that since first launching the archive he received many questions about them, prompting him to reprocess it at an unedited higher-resolution – the images are 1,800 DPI. "Contrary to some recent media reports, this new Flickr gallery is not a Nasa undertaking, but an independent one, involving the re-presentation of the public-domain Nasa-provided Apollo mission imagery as it was originally provided in its raw, high-resolution and unprocessed form by the Johnson Space Center on DVD-R and including from the centre's Gateway to Astronaut Photography of Earth website," he wrote in a statement.
