    Apollo Landings add-on

    Update 3/01/06: version 1.2.1 released
    Version 1.2.1 includes a complete install/uninstall and some impact sites, with improved icons for impact sites and a bug fix. See the Add-on page for details.

    Thanks to Google's tribute to the Apollo landings, I've been able to create an add-on for the moon that illustrates all the apollo landings.
    <s>Note that the locations are just estimates (especially 12 & 14), I compared google moon with WW to pinpoint the locations, so they're not exact.</s> The locations are now exact. Also note that Apollo 13 didn't land because an explosion forced its early return (I didn't forget it. )
    The icons are linked to NASA's history pages, and the descriptions are "borrowed" from those pages. So without further ado, here you go. Download and run the installer to enjoy.


    Note: The download link was down, but is back up as of 10/18/06. It may be version 1.2, if so version 1.2.1 will be uploaded shortly. Thanks to pangloss for providing me a copy.

    The resolution isn't high enough to see anyhing other than the vague areas that they landed in. So all you'll see is a dark splotch.

    Appolo landings

    This might sound stupid but i wanted to look at the lunar landings .... and theyre covered up.
    its just darkness:
    00.67408 °N latitude, 23.47297 °E longitude
    is it just a glitch or are the public not allowed to see it ?
    thanks.
    if someone could reply i would appreciate it

    Updated - just found out that pangloss had the right version (thanks!), so there's no need to redownload, I just changed the file name to be more standard.

    Ah, another twobeds fatality. Unfortunately, I've changed computers, and the installer is 70 miles away. If no one else uploads it before me, I'll see what I can do to find it.

    Only issue: The Moon is made of GREEN cheese... not yellow cheese.


    All right, TomServo, I&#39;ve updated the cheese addon with green cheese and an Add-On page on the Wiki. It now has its own thread as well. Enjoy.

    Again, updated. Bug fixed where (I think) the paths to the icons were messed up, so they showed up as red x&#39;s. Also, better icons now.

    Holy cow, I put a WebStats4U counter on the download page, and here&#39;s the list of downloads locations in the past two days, mostly from WorldWindCentral:
    Code:
    1.	United States
    2.	Germany
    3.	United Kingdom
    4.	Sweden
    5.	Japan
    6.	France
    7.	Uruguay
    8.	Slovakia
    9.	Australia
    10.	Switzerland
    Good grief&#33;
