It is with deep regret that we happened to learn of the death of Neil Armstrong this past weekend. Leaving behind an incredible legacy as being the very first man to step foot on the surface of the Moon, what better way to remember the man who made the ‘giant leaps for mankind’ than with Danish photographer Hans Nyberg’s incredible Apollo 11 interactive panorama.
Itself an update of the panorama originally made by Nyberg to mark the 35th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission in 2004, this ‘super resolution’ panorama is somehow a fitting tribute to mark the unfortunate death of Neil Armstrong and a truly remarkable insight into the kinds of views greeting the crew as they first touched down on the surface of the Moon. Best viewed full screen, the panorama allows you to pan and zoom across the image and better take in the otherworldly appearance of the lunar landscape from the viewpoint of Armstrong himself. Breathtaking.
All 122 of the images taken by Apollo 11 astronauts using the on-board Hasselblad camera (including images before stitching) can be viewed here via NASA’s Apollo 11 multimedia online archive.

It looks like I ruffled some feathers with my previous post about why people should just let the headphone jack die - with many of you voicing your own opinions in the comments. This has been a great dialogue to see, and I've picked some to respond to.
Can we please just realise that the headphone jack is outdated and should have been killed off a while ago?
As a human, you will experience highs and lows in life – success, failure, love, loss and much more. How do we cope with turbulent times? Well, let me be the one to say the answer is not inspirational memes.
Watching one YouTuber react to Jake Paul and his dad taking part in kissing competition by kissing the same 18-year-old girl made me realise one thing – YouTube is fucked beyond repair.
Radio listeners are dropping off a cliff, and it’s obvious the world is turning to podcasting for their audio-based entertainment – the democratising platform that is slowly (but surely) being led by Anchor.
