Unseen pictures of Apollo program (18 PHOTOS)

(ORDO NEWS) — Recently, a fundraising campaign was launched on the Internet for one interesting project. A group of Russian engineers and space enthusiasts intends to launch a satellite into lunar orbit in order to photograph the traces of astronauts, American Apollo spacecraft and Soviet Lunokhods that are (or not) on the lunar surface.

For the implementation of the project, according to a group of enthusiasts, it takes only 14,320.00 United States Dollars (1 million rubles).

Meanwhile, NASA published 8,000 of the previously unseen snapshot of the Apollo program, which took place in the 1960s and 1970s. Today we’ll see some of them.
