Vimeo user 'Harrisonicus' was clicking through the recently released Project Apollo photos on Flickr when he realized that the rapid scrolling was creating a sort of rough animated vignette. He was curious about the idea, and decided to make a stop motion video combining every image from the Project Apollo archive. The result is this stop motion animation, which displays the beauty of the photographs taken on the Project Apollo missions.

NASA recently uploaded over 8,400 unedited scans of images from the Project Apollo moon missions to Flickr, where anyone can access and view them. Taking the photographs and making new works of art with them is a fascinating way to commemorate the historical missions of the 1960s and 70s, which are already indelibly marked on humanity's collective consciousness.
