First time I've seen that, super cool. If any of you haven't seen the Apollo 11 movie, do it. Buy it, rent it, stream it. All the fuzzy, crappy, video you grew up watching is absolutely crystal clear. Its like they sent back film equipment from present day to film it all. The found in cold storage large format film reels which were pristine and coverted it to digital format. If you're a space buff like me its a must see

Very cool bit of history there. . .

 

I remember being at a drive-in movie and the theatre stopping the show to announce "we've got an American walking on the moon."  The whole place erupted with hoots and hollers.  I'll never forget that. . .

In the mid-60's, the company where I worked, built the cooling fan structures for the launch pad mobile unit. Since I was the only industrial engineer there at the time, I got real involved with the project and my interest remained for a long time. I've collected way too much stuff about the space program. Just putting these on eBay today, because the kids don't have the same interest.

Carafe and Apollo missions 11 thru 14

Mugs shaped like a booster rocket that flip over when you need a shot glass.

Lots of other stuff from those early days.

One of the more outspoken of several similar defenders in my neighborhood. Most of us are silent and available as needed.
