On July 20th, 1969, human beings stepped foot onto the moon. The Apollo 11 flew about a quarter million miles with Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and some other guy that didn’t walk on the moon.

Of the three astronauts, none of them could afford life insurance policies. In lieu of purchasing one they got together, signed a bunch of autographs and sent them to a friend. The goal? To sell them in case they crashed the Apollo 11. If they were smart they would have made t-shirts and black light posters with them fighting moon martians or whatever the fuck could have been up there. Those would have been worth way more. Seriously, did we even know back then? Talk about an oversight.

Anyways, NASA just released 8,400 hi-res photos of the Apollo 11 and following missions. Aside from being amazing they give a glimpse into the day to day lives of the men who pioneered lunar space travel.
