As the world gears up to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 landing on the Moon all the way back in 1969, NVIDIA has updated its Apollo 11 ray tracing demo showcase.

The new update enhances the work NVIDIA did with the original Apollo 11 moon landing demo with improved RTX real-time ray tracing technology. The work that NVIDIA has put into this is quite incredible, with the video above showing off the best that RTX has to offer.

It's a pretty crazy achievement to have these types of graphics with realistic lighting thanks to ray tracing, imagine going back in time to 1969 and showing these graphics running on a PC to someone back in 1969? Their mind would be blown completely wide open.
