Where were you when our astronauts landed on the moon?



Boy, you guys are old! Wink

Odd thing, I remember clearly where I was when Kennedy was shot, when the Challenger exploded, and during the 9/11 tragedy. I know I watched the landing, but I have no clear memory of where I was. I'm pretty sure I must have been at my parents' home since I was still living there.

I hope I'm not the only one watching a fantastic program on PBS tonight. Using real audio from the Apollo 11 mission, with good actors and special effects, the entire mission is shown from a unique perspective.

Really stupendous!

The program is titled "Eight Days to the Moon and Back".

It incorporates actual audio from the mission, as well as a lot of the video and stills the mission produced. Supplemented by live actors and special effects.

I found the part that showed how the command module separated from the rest of the ship, turned around, and docked with the lunar lander, to be especially fascinating. Perhaps because I've never seen that, as I was in an isolated location in the high mountains while this event occurred, and so missed nearly all of the TV coverage of the time.

I turned 4 that year so not old enough to understand the significance of the event as it happened.  I do however remember our TV was housed in a wooden console (about as as tall as I was) with a hatch on top where you could play a record.
  

My political goal is the pursuit of personal liberty & freedom for ALL, not be governed by fools & crooks who pick our pockets then claim its for "our benefit"---it’s a scam. When a politician votes it’s to take away another freedom; tax the people to fatten another's pocket; & grant themselves unlimited powers embodied by a large police & military force at their beck and call if anyone rebels

I recall the Mercury Project leading up to the Moonshot.  We all grew up having pride in being Americans and conducting duck and cover drills in our schools and having CD 16 mm films of what happens after the Russians launch their nukes and blow up our cities and infrastructure.  It all began with sputnik and Kruchev banging his shoe at the UN saying " We will buy you".  Apollo 11 symbolized America's greatness and gave us hope that perhaps the Russians wouldn't dare attack us after all.

I grew up with the certainty that we'd have colonies on the moon by now, and maybe other planets.  Now it's all we can do to keep a string of tin cans circling in low orbit.  Sad!

A user at one of the facilities I cover had a bunch of old 8mm film converted to digital format that her dad had from the Apollo project. They're putting on a presentation at the local museum Saturday and I've been assisting with the AV/IT side of the program. Pretty freakin' cool watching that old footage. Smiley

I was a one year old babe in arms when the real event occurred.

I'm still blown away by the math these peeps were able to do. And get it right.
