This is really cool.

It's like I'm back in elementary school, glued to the teevee with the rest of my family, watching this as it was happening.

11 PM eastern time right now. T minus nine hours, which means launch time is 8am eastern time Tuesday.

Very cool indeed ! An amazing accomplishment 50 years ago. We should have continued the program and built bases in preparation for Phase II ..... the planet Mars.

When I watched this live 50 years ago I was certain our manned lunar and solar system missions would continue and be at incredibly developed levels by now.

There is absolutely no excuse ...... let's get back to the moon now and then on to Mars, etc. There is plenty more there to see and do (and back-engineer) and all for our benefit and knowledge.

This site is better--it's where the YouToob link is getting their feed from (link below).

You can click the buttons on the screen (Mission Control Channels) to listen to comms from the mission director, CAPCOM 1 or 2, the flight surgeons, etc., all in real time.

No stupid live stream comments here.

The launch went swimmingly.

I took off my white short-sleeved-button-down shirt and black pencil tie, and put my Cramps tee shirt back on.

Now...what to do about this

crew cut?

Very cool. Just watched the launch from the start to about 20 minutes in. Then did some fast forwarding, and jumping around.

This happened two years before I was born. My brother was about a year old.

I forwarded the link to my brother. Fantastic people did that, and made that happen.

I really am blown away, and reminded how great the generations were/are that came before us.

I remember watching with my parents, grandmother, uncle and 2 brothers. It was 2 months before we moved from Detroit to the burbs, 3 months shy of my 10th birthday. Exciting times.

That was around the time my dad still expected me to get crew cuts. I’m not positive but we may have just gotten our first COLOR TV.

This was so huge, I remember when we lived in Brooklyn Dad took me outside one night an pointed out a star that was slowly moving across the sky. He told me that it was a space craft launched by the Russians.

Ever since the night we watched every launch. I recall, before the first man was launched into space the failures. Watching the TV and seeing the rockets fail on the launch pad.

Too bad they never figured out the gravity field drive from the Roswell Crash. You’d think since they eventually did develop element 115, that this drive utilized, they should have, but that took them 72 years.

At least they figured out how to use microwaves to boil water.

Part of the problem is we are so divided. If humanities efforts were more cooperative we could be colonizing Mars by now. At the very least mining rare elements in the Astroid Belt.

We got Velcro from the Roswell crash, too.




And much better weather balloon technology.

Thanks for posting this.

It is the sort of thing the internet was invented for.

I was able listen and watch the first step at the right time.



Fascinating.

Here's a fantastic interview with Apollo 11 Command Module pilot Michael Collins.

The courage-under-fire attitude of Collins, Armstrong, and Aldrin (and their fellow astronauts) can never be completely appreciated.

High stress, low drag
