Apollo 13 in real time is also incredibly engrossing.

It does what it says on the tin (you can skip to any part of the mission timeline, of course, and key moments are bookmarked), and includes not only the audio recordings between Mission Control and the Apollo, but also the Mission Control specialist desks. It's fascinating to hear the discussions between them and makes you realise just how many sources of information the Flight Controller had to try to absorb in a very pressured environment. The site also contains video footage as it happens, and photographs at the moment in the timeline when they were taken, it's very well put together.
