Space, now in 3D

Regular readers know I loves me some three-D anaglyphs, and longtime BABloggee Paolo Amoroso pointed me to some awesome ones! The Italian bulletin board Forum Astronautica has a bunch of them created by the reader LEM. Put on your red-green glasses, scroll down that page, and click on the thumbnails to see some terrific 3D views of Apollo. Check this out:

This is clearly a labor of love for LEM, and we reap the benefits. I have no idea how he makes these — my Italian is limited to sono ferito — and translation sites generally leave me with a waning feeling of hilarity after a few words. Anyway, you don’t necessarily need to know how they are made to enjoy them. Go take a look!
