Turing Recreates Scene of Iconic Lunar Landing

If you’re going to fake a moon landing, you’re going to need the world’s most advanced GPUs. Four years ago, our demo team used GPUs to debunk the myth that the Apollo 11 moon landing was a hoax. So thoroughly, in fact, that it’s become a bit of a joke that the best way to have actually faked the moon landing would’ve been to use technology that didn’t exist at the time. Now, nearly a half century after Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon, we’ve refreshed our earlier demo with the real-time ray-tracing technology we built into our latest GPU architecture, Turing.
