I keep hearing people say, “Seems like only yesterday” but I can’t agree. Even so, it’s an impressive achievement. 40 years ago today, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon.
It seems so trite a phrase “Landed on the moon,” but really think about it. Think of the forces involved. The sheer balls of it. Think of the MATH! In 1969 we put two guys on the freaking moon and brought them back! That was something special and my hats off to everyone that helped out.
If you want a trip down memory lane (or to pretend like you were alive back then, like me), NASA has a great site full of photos and videos.
And, if you’re really jonesing for a trip back, Google Moon can help you out.
