happy den

It was twenty years ago, today...

Actually it was 36 years ago, tomorrow, when an 8 year-old smart-arse sat down in front of a grainy B&W tele and was fascinated by images of a bloke walking on the moon. I found out many years later that Michael Collins didn't have a tele in the command module, and didn't see the moonwalk until he got back home. Time to watch my DVD of The Dish.

Google Maps show all the landing sites! Zoom right in-- you'll be amazed at the resolution.
