NASA imagines a 1969 webpage for the Apollo 11 landing

On July 20, 1969, Apollo 11 touched down on the surface of Earth’s moon. Now, 50 years later, NASA has imagined what the space mission’s website would have looked like.

It’s a cute tie-in for the U.S. space agency’s ongoing 50th anniversary celebration of the moon landing. The “website” is really more of a screenshot mock-up. It doesn’t really have 1969 internet vibes because there was no internet in 1969. But it does look like an old-ass landing page from the World Wide Web.

Here, see for yourself:

There was, of course, an online world before websites like the one imagined above existed. I’m calling back to the era of services like Prodigy, America Online, and CompuServe, and to the Bulletin Board Systems that inspired those services.

But this is, as NASA describes it, nothing more than “a little thought experiment.” An imagining of what the agency’s information-providing homepage might have looked like, “with a style that reflected the changing artistic (and other) standards of the day.”
