We Choose The Moon
We Choose The Moon is an interactive experience recreating the historic Apollo 11 mission to the Moon in real time and celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Mission. Produced by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, it enables users to track the entire process of the Apollo 11 mission from launch to moon landing. This unique experience mixes photos, audio, and transmissions between the spacecraft and mission control. All of this is presented in real time, allowing the user to experience the events as they happened.
"Just like many great RIAs (Rich Internet Applications), this online experience also allows you to migrate the experience to the desktop. In this case, users can download a desktop widget that will help them track the progress from Earth to the moon. In addition, the widget can be integrated with both Facebook and MySpace. And users can track the progress of the lunar mission on Twitter by following mission control, the spacecraft, and the lunar landing craft." - "RIAs that rock" by David Tucker at Adobe Developer Connection
The web site is a rich media experience using Adobe Flex®
and Adobe® Flash® visuals and actual audio and video from the Apollo 11 Mission.
