43 years ago today. You can still hear a bit of the awe of those moments in Walter Cronkite’s voice. I particularly recall after they’d set up a camera outside the LEM looking back at ‘Eagle’ with “LIVE FROM THE MOON” across that ghostly B/W image. I was simply TRANSFIXED.
HERE MEN FROM THE PLANET EARTH
FIRST SET FOOT UPON THE MOON
JULY 1969 A. D.
WE CAME IN PEACE FOR ALL MANKIND
I think it’s almost criminal that we haven’t gone back.
