Follow that link and you can watch and listen to them land as it happened. I watched it live on CBS. We had to wear our 'good' clothes, that I hated, and went over to the neighbors of my grandparents to watch on their color TV. We were allowed to stay up until 10pm to watch the launch a few days earlier, an outrageous time for us being wee little nerdlings.

If you had told me then that we would not go back to the moon again, possibly in my lifetime, I'd have laughed at you, as would all of the adults in that house.
