As part of the 40 year commemoration of the Apollo 11 mission, the first moon landing, NASA has restored the historic videos of the flight.   The videos were released today.

The videos are published as Quicktime files and take a painfully long time to download. Maybe there's rush to view them today? But they are worth the wait.

The Associated Press has uploaded a highlight reel of the new moon mission material to its YouTube channel, and we have embedded it here.

Here's story on the refurbishing of the historic videos just published on Fox News. Here's the take of The New York Times.

Very cool videos to watch.
