Today marks the 51st anniversary of the departure of the Apollo 11 mission to Lua. Thanks to the vast historical archive kept, for example, by NASA, it is possible to return to live, or experience for the first time, the "great leap for Humanity" through countless photos or videos. And why not recreate the historic moment in the living room through augmented reality?
Through the Apollos Moon Shot, an application created by Immersion for NASA and the Smithsonian Institute it is possible to see very closely some of the iconic moments of the mission, such as the launch of the Saturn V rocket or the first steps taken by astronauts on lunar soil.
The application also offers the possibility of taking the commands of the Apollo 11 lunar module and even taking a few selfies on the moon to show friends, with the right to be an astronaut.
To make the trip even more interactive, Apollos Moon Shot includes two mini simulation games in which you can test your skills as an astronaut and pilot the lunar module without hitting space rocks.
Thinking of the most curious, the application has an interactive timeline about the history of Humanity in Space, with quizzes and videos. Also highlighted is the possibility to see several of the objects used in the Apollo missions.
Apollos Moon Shot is free and available for Android devices, on the Play Store, and iOS, on the App Store.
