About this project
Landing on the moon was one of the greatest achievements mankind has ever embarked on and now it’s time for you to step into Neil Armstrong’s shoes and experience what it was like to live through this historic event.
To everybody who helped us.
Thank you so much.
We just found this posted on YouTube and had to share it. This is why we started this project in the first place. I have skipped to the end as this kid explains how much this meant to him.
Again thanks so much. Your support really means a lot to us.
Team @ Apollo 11.
DOWNLOAD DEMO BELOW
Using NASA archive footage and audio we have created an inspirational journey that we hope will engage students and give them a better understanding of what took place way back in 1969. We don’t just want kids to read about history we want them to experience history as a living entity that they can relate to.
Please note that NASA does not endorse this educational experience in any way.
To help us achieve our goal we need your help. Our prototype demo is just a proof of concept at the moment and just a small taste of what we have planned. Your money will help us recreate the full mission with more detailed models, animated avatars and interactive gameplay. We want to make the Apollo Experience everything it can be and we want you to climb on board to help us achieve this goal.
Neil took One Giant Leap back in 1969 and we are asking if you can take One Small Step today and back this project.
Apollo 11 is just the beginning, let’s make history together and change the face of education forever.
The Apollo 11 experience will not only be an inspiring experience but will also be highly educational which will benefit anybody interested in learning more about this momentous event.
The Apollo 11 experience is designed to be an accurate recreation of the events leading up to the first moon walk and includes features such as
- Accurate digital models of the Saturn V, Command Module, Lunar Lander, Astronauts, Launch Tower.
- The Original Real Time audio from NASA Control, the Command Module, and Lunar Lander.
- Interviews from the Astronauts themselves
- Guided tour or Interactive experience based on your preference
Once funded the full experience will include tons of narrated facts about the mission and also include
- Archive footage and NASA audio of the real event
- Launch & Flight to Lunar orbit
- Command & Lunar Module docking
- Lunar landing
- Lunar surface operations
- Lunar ascent and return

Goosebumps=BACKED. Getting my hair straight for a nice polaroid and fly me to the moon, baby!
Regarding tshirt mock ups as above we have not had any confirmation back as of yet as to whether the logo will be permitted but we have taken it out of the experience during the update just in case. That being said we don’t want to have a scenario where we have promised you something that we cannot deliver so to err on the side of caution, for anyone ordering the tshirt with the NASA logo attached we will send you an official NASA tshirt.We hope that this eases concerns that anyone might have in relation to the use of the logo.

What You Tubers Think
Risks and challenges
Once funded you can be assured that you will receive a quality product that lives up to expectations. With Drash's VR development skills and David's Audio/Visual expertise this experience will be a unique historical experience that will have a lasting effect.
We are seeking funding as creating such an experience is very time consuming and currently we are funding this through our own pockets by refusing other paid projects. We are passionate about VR and can see huge benefits for this new medium to be used as an educational tool helping students to visualise and engage in their studies in a uniquely immersive way.
Your money will allow us to fully develop this experience making it everything it can be and accelerate its final release.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
