Unless you were hiding under a (moon) rock last month, you already know that July 20 is the 50th anniversary of NASA's Apollo 11 lunar landing.
And since then fifty years have gone by Man visited the moon for the first time, since 1976 no human has entered his surface. Fortunately, Augmented Reality offers the opportunity to experience the launch and landing of Apollo 11 as well as the Moonwalk within our own land-based land borders
The John F. Kennedy Foundation was one of the first organizations to have their AR experience last month with the Apollo 11 theme. Since then, a wide range of free AR experiences have captured mobile devices, so fans of space history can not do without Moon-AR content.
I came across the 3D model of the Apollo 1
Android users can find them by searching Google for "Apollo 11" or "Moon Land Date" (like me) and scroll down the "View in 3D" map. After scanning the environment, users can view the command module in its original size or reduce it to a more manageable size. Google plans to launch a 3D model of Neil Armstrong's search results suit later this month.
The model is very detailed and conveys the experience of content in the real world Anchoring the world is smooth, this is also the most basic of the available AR experiences. (By comparison, Google-provided non-AR Apollo 11 content is very robust.) Fortunately, there are even more options if it does not satisfy your appetite for moon landing content or if you're a member of the iPhone clan
The next AR experience to land on mobile devices (without wordplay) is through the USA Today app for iOS and Android.
The experience is called "Apollo 11: America's Journey" "To The Moon" finds users in the Top Stories section of the app, even though I've scrolled twice about it. (Seriously, USA Today, please add an AR section to the app!)
The experience focuses more on rocket launch than landing. Users can watch newsreel footage of the launch, walk around a scale model of the Apollo 11 rocket in their space, and learn more about each component of the rocket. Unfortunately, the experience of getting the rocket up into the sky stops.
Appeared as a companion to the Smithsonian Channel's six-part series on space travel, the Apollo's Moon Shot app for iOS and Android provides users with diverse content for monumental moon landing.
Smithsonian has been able to enhance Google's experience of space for both Neil Armstong's space suit and the Apollo 11 command module. With the suit, Smithsonian beats Google for marketing and offers a detailed model of the suit that includes hotspots with details about different parts of the suit. Experience continues with the command module, allowing users to learn more about the craft through hotspots. As an added benefit, users can also board the spacecraft.
Apollo's Moon Shot also creates an animated experience that takes a small step beyond USA Today's experience by actually launching the rocket into the sky.
The app also features a pair of AR minigames that prompt users to perform astronaut-style tasks. First, users try to fly a rocket around the earth and toss the command module into the orbit of the moon. Second, users must lead the lander to a successful landing. Confession: I have no success in both tasks.
So if you can just download an AR Space App to celebrate the "Moon Jubilee," Apollo's Moonshit will give you the best for your money because of the variety of content.  These Apollo 11 augmented reality experiences from Google, USA, today and Smithsonian fly you to the moon ” width=”270″ height=”270″ style=”max-width:532px;height:auto;”/>

The earlier raids on the AR release allowed users to scan magazine front pages and pages to unlock extra content. Conversely, the new Time Immersive app, available for iOS and Android, provides standalone AR content.
After users have anchored part of the lunar surface in their physical environment, they can see the moon landing in real time (including rendering the radio transmissions) from the perspective of the third person, with the module first appearing as a spot in the distance. A dial allows users to fast-forward or rewind the sequence until the lander lands in front of them. Users can also see the landing from the perspective of an astronaut in the lander. The app then switches to a 360 VR experience where users can virtually walk around the moon itself.
In addition, Time has a mobile AR Amazon experience is created by Sumerian to give readers a web-based look at the app experience.
To sum up, there is no lack of AR experiences to recall this monumental moment in human history. But the experiences in virtual space do not have to stop with your mobile devices. The Weather Channel uses AR for its Moon Landing segment (see video below) and weather on the only natural Earth satellite.
The Moon Landing was a milestone in space exploration, raising the bar for future efforts. Based on the AR experiences that celebrated the event, the moon landing also seems to have caused AR app developers to pursue higher goals with their own projects.
