Nvidia recreates Apollo 11 pictures digitally

Didn't know where to put this, but I thought it was interesting: http://www.engadget.com/2014/09/18/NVIDIA-proves-moon-landing/

Apparently, they will release this demo to the public with an UI, so one can experiment at home with the lighting on the moon.

Well, it is like this: The truth doesn't need insults. Insults are the refuge of a darkened mind, a mind that refuses to open and see. Foul language can't outcompete knowledge. And knowledge is the result of education. Education is the result of the wish to know more, not less.

Very cool. Unfortunately, the HBers will almost certainly claim that NVIDIA is now in on the hoax.
