Over 12,000 images of Apollo moon missions released on Flickr

If you've always thought that the NASA moon landing in 1969 was a hoax, these pictures might change your mind.

Over 12,000 images from NASA's moon missions in the late 1960s to early 70s have been uploaded to photo-sharing website Flickr.

The images, which have been uploaded in full high-definition and unprocessed, show the iconic Apollo moon missions and represents almost every picture ever taken from the moon, reported Space.com.

Many of the photos were also shot during other parts of the mission, told archive founder Kipp Teague to The Planetary Society.

Teague, who is a space enthusiast, had requested for the shots years ago from NASA to detail what astronauts did on the moon. Now, they are shared en masse on the Project Apollo archive on Flickr.

According to CNN, the collection spans from Apollo 7, which is the first manned test flight in 1968, through to Apollo 17 in 1972, the program's final lunar mission.

The surreal images captured of Earth, the moon and of the astronauts doing their things in zero gravity give an insight into one of the most famous space program's in history.

Photos taken on the moon from Hasseblad cameras strapped on to the astronauts' chests show a desolate and vast expanse of land, a stark contrast to the living Earth. Craters on the moon are crystal clear; even the close-up shots of the astronauts are extremely detailed and look like they were taken only yesterday.

Still think that the moon landings are a hoax? These photographs might just silence conspiracy theorists out there.
