Apollo Landings add-on
Developer 5of0
Latest release 1.2 / 2006-2-19
License public domain
Web site World Wind Forums

Thanks to Google's tribute to the Apollo landings, I've been able to create an add-on for the moon that illustrates all the apollo landings.

Update 2/19/06: v. 1.2 released

Thanks to the work of Michael Stennecken, pointed out by spectrel, I have been able to add the exact coordinates of the landings. Thanks, Michael and spectrel! Version 1.2 includes an updated installer with uninstall capabilities and standardized naming, as well as the addition of some impact sites, pointed out by an anonymous guest.

Note that Apollo 13 didn't land because an explosion forced its early return (I didn't forget it.) The icons are linked to NASA's history pages, and the descriptions are "borrowed" from those pages.

Download and run the installer to use it.
