Thousands of high-resolution photos from the manned Apollo missions have just made their way to the Internet. Here are some of the best.

Apollo Project Photos

If you sit with doubt about the moon landing or any subsequent Apollo missions, this new gallery of just-released images from the Project Apollo Archive might just change your mind.

Thousands of photos, all unretouched and in high-resolution glory, have been curated into a Flickr album by Kipp Teague, creator of the archival project. While you could easily sit and cull through the mountain of photos, we at All That’s Interesting did some of that leg work for you and chose 50 of our favorites to share in the gallery below. There are even a few #Moonstagrams and #SpaceSelfies in there:
