Apollo 11 landing - 47 years later.

A few days ago it was 47 years since Neil and Buzz landed on the moon (let's not forget Mike Collins in orbit in the CM!) and became the first humans to walk on the moon.
The Smithsonian has been scanning the inside of the CM "Columbia" to exact details.  There is an article on the page showing how they carefully did this. 
Here is an extremely cool virtual reality view inside the spacecraft.  If you explore around, you'll even find notes here and there that the crew wrote on the walls.   Now I just need to find some VR goggles of some sort for my iPhone and I could really play astronaut!
