Now available! Stereo Apollo for the Apple Vision Pro

The first three lunar landings of the Apollo program carried a custom-built stereo camera, the Apollo Lunar Surface Closeup Camera, for an investigation of properties of lunar soil.

Eastman Kodak designed and built the camera in 5 months beginning in January, 1969. Principal investigator was Thomas Gold, of Cornell University, and lunar surface journals occasionally refer to it as the Gold camera. Astronauts used the ALSCC to take 48 stereo pairs of the lunar surface in total.

Stereo Apollo shows you these image pairs as true stereographs on the Apple Vision Pro.

Requires Apple Vision Pro.
