Moon landing simulator

by

Today is the 40th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11. So, technically, we should be linking to a launch simulator. Instead, here’s a moon landing simulator based upon a 1979 arcade game by Atari.

    There’s also a rather nice model of it in Second Life http://slurl.com/secondlife/NASA%20CoLab/128/128/23 – though not sure if it takes off etc. Maybe I’ve just not found that bit yet!

    (And, I take it you’ve seen http://www.google.com/moon/ – which shows where the different missions landed – though sadly zooming right in no longer reveals the true nature of the moon)
