A Vimeo user has uploaded on the social video-sharing website a clip showcasing astronaut-taken photos from the Apollo Space Missions.

Uploaded by user harrisonicus on Friday, Oct. 9, the video has given a fresh new look on the still images by incorporating it in a truly stunning stop motion presentation.

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has recently released 11,660 photos under its Project Apollo Archive Flickr account. In the said account, Apollo 7 through 17 missions, close-up moon snapshots and even astronaut selfies were featured. The photos were uploaded under public domain and are available for everyone to view and marvel upon.

In the original Vimeo post, the user said that he was looking through the images in the Project Apollo Archive, which looked as if it was a stop motion animation. "So, I decided to see what that would look like without me having to click through it. Enjoy!" the creator wrote.

Project Apollo did not only aim to put the American flag on the moon and return its crew safely back to Earth. The objectives of the said lunar mission included creating a technology that can help to meet other the space interest goals of the nation, attaining predominance in space for the U.S., implementing a scientific exploration program on the moon and enhancing human's ability to work in the lunar setting.

The first manned test flight of the mission is the Apollo 7, which flew to space in 1968. The last mission was the Apollo 17, which happened in 1972.

The Apollo mission used the flight mode called lunar orbit rendezvous, which was chosen in 1962. For the orbit flights, the Saturn IB was used as boosters for the program, while on lunar flights, it was the Saturn V.

The spacecraft of the mission had three parts, which are the command module (CM) or the team's quarters and flight control center, the service module (SM) or the support and propulsion systems and the lunar module (LM), which assisted two crew members to the surface of the moon and returned them on the combined command and service modules in lunar orbit.
