WeChooseTheMoon.org is a real time immersive interactive website for the John F Kennedy Library and Museum to commemorate the 40-year anniversary of Apollo 11, JFK’s unique and pioneering vision to land the first man on the moon.
The site went live on July 16, 2009 at 8:02 a.m. 1-hour prior to launch at 9:32 a.m. – exactly 40 years to the minute after the historic launch. Visitors are then taken on their own 4-day virtual real time trip to the moon broken into 11 key stages. During the 4-day experience, users will be able track the progress of the journey via and Downloadable Widget, Email or Twitter. Tweets will also be charted on the website, in relation to the point in the journey. In addition to this, the actual 4-day long NASA audio of the Apollo 11 mission will stream through the site.
Once the collective experience is over, the site will automatically switch over to a website that you can click through like any other. All 11 stages will be unlocked and navigable via the dots on the "Mission Tracker" or via a left hand navigation panel.
