My infant son was on my lap. I wondered then what he and his generation would think about men walking on the moon -- so exciting and historic for us, but perhaps to become routine for him. He slept or nursed through most of the adventure. He was only 6 weeks old!
Today on my computer I have just watched a 40th anniversary repeat of the countdown to the launch of Apollo 11. Walking on the moon hasn't become routine, but having powerful computers in our homes and being able to watch videos at any time has become routine. Apollo 11 videos:
- Moon Landing 1969 (2 min video in color, highlights)
- Sea of Tranquility Landing (10 min video from 1 camera)
- The Apollo Program (National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian)
- Apollo 11 Audio & Video (National Air and Space Museum, Smithsonian).
