Inspired by Google's tribute to the Apollo landings, this add-on illustrates all the apollo landings and some impact sites as well.

Update 2006-03-01: v. 1.2.1 released

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 forum guest. The 1.2.1 update includes better icons for the impact sites and a bug fix for an error in the icon locations.

In version 1.1, thanks to the work of Michael Stennecken pointed out by spectrel, I was able to add the exact coordinates of the landings. Thanks, Michael and spectrel!

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.
