One Great AR App for Mankind
JFK Moonshot celebrates Apollo 11 and the late president's contributions.
An AR Experience
Fifty years ago, Neil Armstrong became the first human being to set foot on the lunar surface. But his boots would never have touched moondust without the contributions of another great American: President John F. Kennedy.
The new app JFK Moonshot commemorates Apollo 11’s historic anniversary, highlighting Kennedy’s stewardship of the national campaign to get Armstrong, and pilots Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins, safely to the moon and back.
The app mixes augmented reality (AR) and archival video footage with photos depicting key moments. They include the president’s 1961 speech before Congress declaring the country’s commitment to sending an astronaut to the moon within a decade, plus footage of the moon landing itself in 1969.
