Apollo 11 Tranquility Base Simulation in Second Life

from dadenmedia: "This video shows a simulation of Tranquility Base built in Second Life by Linden Lab Gold Partner Daden Limited. As well as featuring a model of the Lunar Lander the simulation features a map overlay at 1:1 scale showing where the astronauts walked, and hotspots that shows the images and video in a HUD that were taken by the astronauts from the places they were made. The science experiments are also in their correct places and link back to web pages providing more information...."

In honor of the 40th Anniversary of Apollo 11 [July 16 - 24, 1969], I setup two excerpt videos from episode 6 of the HBO mini-series "From The Earth To The Moon"
