July 20, 1969

Today is the 49th anniversary of man landing on the Moon.  A titanic achievement by brave men of this fine country.  Sadly, probably on some level the pinnacle of our achievement thus far.  But I hold out hope and optimism that President Trump will challenge that pinnacle for the 50th anniversary and beyond.  Enjoy some of the footage below.  I’d also be remiss if I didn’t recommend the fantastic In the Shadow of the Moon which is available on Amazon Prime and interviews many of the 12 men who landed on the moon.
