Apollo 40 years ago

There is something about the Apollo adventure that has fascinate me the last decade or so. I have a bookshelf with books and DVDs and have read most of the astronauts memories. On Monday, July 20, it's been 40 years since those first steps on the moon and this anniversary is being noted a lot at least here in the US. The book stores are filled with books on Apollo and the moon adventure, the news sites have special Apollo coverage and the science and history channels show programs.

One of the cool websites on this is the We Choose the Moon website, by the John F Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum - where you can follow the Apollo 11 mission second by second - hearing the live transmissions etc.

Pretty cool. If you're an Apollo nerd...
