Confession: one thing that I loved about the content here was its use of the iconic Neil Armstrong picture... because it was the picture I used in the only 'viral meme' I ever created. Yes, many others have continued the theme with other Neils (Gaiman, Diamond, Patrick Harris, deGrasse Tyson, etc.), but I was first AND the most literal, since Apollo 11 was 12 years before Superman 2.

I wasn't thinking buddy movie so much as indie-prog band.

Optimized for Internet Explorer 6 and a resolution of 1024x768px.

Ahhhh...the golden age of being a Mac user on the web.
I'm going to assume that 2003 is a Flash site, since it doesn't display in iOS Safari.

I'm a bit amused at the "blog" link all the way back in 1991.

It jumping to flash (?) in 2003 and getting all bootstrapped in 2011 were my favorite bits.

I'm not sure the dates are that meaningful though - past 1998 or so you could do much nicer looking stuff than shown there, and past 2001 the MySpace-y looks pretty much stayed on MySpace.

Anecdotally, I found that I automatically read every word on the first page, and only the title "NASA and the space" on the last one, despite scrolling down to see the whole thing. Everything else on the last page I automatically skimmed.

Here's the buddy movie: We Can't Live Without Cosmos [YouTube]

When it got to 1999, I literally cackled.

So accurate.

Very nice. Man, that 2013 is accurate.

Interesting that they are actually all written in html5. Do sites written in the old style display in modern browsers?

It's browser dependent, but for the most part they will. Certain elements like the blink tag generally won't (although googling for "blink tag" may convince you otherwise.)
