Turing Recreates Scene of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing with a New Demo

About four years ago, NVIDIA’s demo team used their GPUs to debunk the popular nonsense that the Apollo 11 moon landing was a hoax faked on a movie lot on earth. Afterward, it became a joke that the best way to have actually faked the moon landing would have been to use technology that didn’t exist in the 1960s. But it exists now with Turing and there is a new demo out from NVIDIA

Now, nearly a half century after Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon, Nvidia has refreshed their earlier demo. Here is the demo using real-time ray-tracing technology that NVIDIA built into their latest GPU architecture, Turing.
