houston, we have no problem
I did not intend to let this 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing pass unremarked. Launching on July 16th, 1969 from the Kennedy Space Center at 9:32 AM, local time – in the unlikely event that you may have missed all recent television coverage on it – Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins splashed back down to earth four days later on July 20th with just 25 seconds worth of fuel remaining. Unbuckle your safety belt and grab an earful of Cozy Powell\’s barefaced homage to Jimi\’s \”Third Stone from the Sun\”.
The Eagle has landed, siblings. And Eugene lingers on the dark side of the moon.
