Apollo 11

At this date and time, 40 years ago today, man first landed on the moon. Six and a half hours later, Neil Armstrong stepped onto the lunar surface. Our perspective was forever changed.

My respect and admiration to the people that made it possible and those that allow us to fly in space today. Most of the men who made the trip are still alive today. Will we return to the moon in their lifetimes? Will people today choose to go back or will it remain a curiosity of history?

"Roger Tranquility, we copy you on the ground. You got a bunch of guys about to turn blue down here -- we're breathing again. Thanks a lot." - Apollo 11, Capcom response

"I look up at the Moon and wonder, when will we be going back, and who will that be?" - Apollo 13 (the movie)
