45 Years Ago Today

Two brave men set foot on the Moon, while their shipmate orbited the Moon.

Cronkite (I think) called him "The Lonliest Man In The Universe".

Thanks to Keads for this stunningly wonderful recording of the event.

Even today, 45 years later, it brings tears to my old eyes......



We simply could NOT mount this effort today, and Denninger agrees with me.

I'd say more, but I'm FAR too disgusted with what our Country has become......

  1. Slipsticks and octal computers, and people that actually DID the math in longhand... It worked... And no we couldn't do this today... dammit...

  2. I'm sad to say I missed watching it, being a kid, and more interested that day in something happening outside. I still regret that. Thanks for remembering those brave men and all the amazing minds that made it happen.
