The images, offered at a resolution of 1800 dpi, are new scans of original NASA photos taken during the missions in the 1960s and 1970s.

The collection includes every photo taken on the lunar surface by astronauts with their chest-mounted Hasselblad cameras, arranged by the roll of film they were on.

These include blurry outtakes and intimate shots of astronauts shaving during the three-day journey between Earth and the moon.

The restoration project has been going on for more than ten years.

"Around 2004, Johnson Space Center began re-scanning the original Apollo Hasselblad camera film magazines" technician Kipp Teague told The Planetary Society.

"These images were processed for inclusion on our websites, including adjusting color and brightness levels."
