Apollo 12 was the sixth manned flight in the United States Apollo program and the second to land on the Moon (an H type mission), launched November 14, 1969, from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, four months after Apollo 11. Mission commander Charles "Pete" Conrad and Lunar Module Pilot Alan L. Bean performed just over one day and seven hours of lunar surface activity while Command Module Pilot Richard F. Gordon remained in lunar orbit. The landing site for the mission was located in the southeastern portion of the Ocean of Storms. They carried the first color television camera to the lunar surface on an Apollo flight, but transmission was lost after Bean accidentally destroyed the camera by pointing it at the Sun. On one of two moonwalks, they visited the Surveyor and removed some parts for return to Earth. Continue reading for more fascinating images from around the web.

Photographer Steven Burton unveils his latest project, "Skin Deep," which involves digitally removing the tattoos of ex-gang members to expose a side they haven't seen in years. "A friend of mine was working at Homeboy Industries and took me to see the documentary G-dog; which is about father Greg Boyle and Homeboy Industries, which is an NGO that he founded and is director of. After watching the film, I was inspired by Father Greg Boyle and equally inspired and moved by the Homeboys/girls trying to change their lives against the odds. I knew I had to do something to help spread awareness. The concept came to me when I learned that tattoo removal was such an important part of leaving the gangs," Burton told Peta Pixel.

Simply put, a fractal is a natural phenomenon or a mathematical set that exhibits a repeating pattern that displays at every scale. Approximate fractals found in nature display self-similarity over extended, but finite, scale ranges. The connection between fractals and leaves, for instance, is currently being used to determine how much carbon is contained in trees. These flowers above fall under this category, and are oddly satisfying to look at. Continue reading for more creative examples. Click here for a few bonus images.

With all the new camera gear being released, it's easy to get lost in trying to keep up with the latest and greatest, rather than focusing on improving your techniques. Photographer Skyler Adams fell into that trap and decided to get back to her roots by purchasing a Canon Sure Shot camera and an expired roll of Fujifilm Superia 400 film for $1. "I wanted to challenge my gear acquisition syndrome, so I decided to shoot with a $1 camera for a month," said Adams. Continue reading to see a few more of the photographs she captured.
