The graphics contained within this website are brilliant. I personally have never experienced anything like it before. It demonstrates step by step a guide of the mission accomplished on the moon. It tells you how long you have been in the air and how long you have left. It also illustrates the variety of stages that the craft goes through. It was set up to celebrate the 40th anniversary of this historic Apollo 11 mission.
43,000 people cast a vote to what they felt was the best site, this was to be awarded the FWA People’s Choice Award 2009.
