One small step ...

I was 11 (almost 12) during the summer of 1969 and I watched the moon landing on July 20 with eager anticipation. If you want to relive your memories (or make new ones if you're too young to remember it), check out the panoramic shots the astronauts took with special cameras. They've been made into QuickTime movies with sound and are very cool. The site links to NASA sites about the moon landings if you want to do more research. You'll also find a link there to Google Moon, which maps where the different moon landings took place. Zoom all the way in for a nifty Easter egg.

And somehow it seems appropriate to note today that Scotty has died at age 85, as well as the man who invented TV dinners.
