As a long time space buff, anything NASA related will get a look from me but http://www.firstmenonthemoon.com/ is really impressive.

Anyone interested in the first manned moon landing will love the site:

They’ve combined and synchronized the audio, video and some data from the landing sequence into a single display.

Hit Play and watch the landing video plus all the conversations between Houston and the astronauts during the minutes before landing.

On the left (page and speaker) is the ‘air to ground loop’ where Capcom, Charlie Duke speaks to the astronauts. On the right (page and speaker) is the “Flight Director’s Loop” where the legendary Gene Kranz manages the whole thing with input from specialists.  The transcript of both loops is shown, click ‘Sync On’ both sides to see the words as you hear them.

There are photos of the people you’re hearing (like Steve Bales ‘Guidance’ and ‘steely-eyed missile man’ John Aaron ‘Eecom’).  The position of the LM during descent and the position of the controllers in Mission Control.  Hover over tech terms and acronyms for an explanation.  Even Neil Armstrong’s heart rate is displayed!

It’s a fascinating and wonderful use of the web.  Well done to all involved and thanks.
