This Video Shows The Apollo Missions Like You've Never Seen Them Before

Warning: This might make you feel a teensy bit travel sick, but it's worth it.

Vimeo user harrisonicus put together this "stop motion" video using photos of the Apollo missions.

"I was looking through the Project Apollo Archive and at one point, I began clicking through a series of pics quickly and it looked like stop motion animation," he writes in the video description. "So, I decided to see what that would look like without me having to click through it."

The Project Apollo Archive contains thousands of images from the crewed missions to the moon: from astronauts working on the moon to spacecraft on their way there and Earthrise as seen from lunar orbit.
