What’s on TV tonight? For just 15 cents, you could have received some quality televised programming courtesy m @tvguide the week of July 19-25, 1969 for the greatest exploratory voyage undertaken by humankind. NBC, CBS & ABC all broadcast the July 20th Apollo 11 touchdown with 94% of the American public tuned in for the historic event. 600 million people watched worldwide. Walter Cronkite did a masterful job for CBS as broadcaster & his Apollo 11 live coverage can be seen on YouTube.

As usual, I was screwing around on the Internet rather than working on one of my latest stories, and I found something so heartwarming that I just had to share it. I realize that not everybody here is a fan of John Wayne, and I know that most - if not all - of us have had our fair share of gripes with the US government, but really, I feel that this message is too important to not share with everybody, and I want all of you to wake up tomorrow and make something out of your day no matter how horrible it turns out to be. The way I see it, if we all do that, then we might not just end up making a better country, but a better world. Ciao for now, and grease for peace!

Some 1960s living room splendour. Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong & Michael Collins discuss things in the living room as Janet Armstrong sits nearby. All 3 astronauts flew during Project Gemini; Armstrong on Gemini 8, Collins on G10 & Aldrin on G12. It would be their final spaceflight; I guess it’s tough to do an encore after the first moon landing. Backup for A11 were Jim Lovell, Fred Haise & William Anders.

A job to do. Astronauts Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins & Buzz Aldrin head to train for the first crewed landing on the moon courtesy Apollo 11, July 1969. Sputnik 1 was launched in Oct 1957 by the USSR & became the 1st satellite launched into space by humans. It completed 1440 orbits over its 22 days in space. A dozen years later, NASA landed Apollo 11 on the moon. Armstrong & Aldrin spent 21 & 1/2 hours on the lunar surface with 90 minutes devoted to moonwalks. What an incredible space race.

We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.
— John F. Kennedy
@neil-gaiman on Imposter Syndrome.
".... Some years ago, I was lucky enough invited to a gathering of great and good people: artists and scientists, writers and discoverers of things. And I felt that at any moment they would realise that I didn't qualify to be there, among these people who had really done things.
On my second or third night there, I was standing at the back of the hall, while a musical entertainment happened, and I started talking to a very nice, polite, elderly gentleman about several things, including our shared first name. And then he pointed to the hall of people, and said words to the effect of, "I just look at all these people, and I think, what the heck am I doing here? They've made amazing things. I just went where I was sent."
And I said, "Yes. But you were the first man on the moon. I think that counts for something."
And I felt a bit better. Because if Neil Armstrong felt like an imposter, maybe everyone did. Maybe there weren't any grown-ups, only people who had worked hard and also got lucky and were slightly out of their depth, all of us doing the best job we could, which is all we can really hope for."

Listen.... I’m not saying Mike Collins was the coolest astronaut on Apollo 11, but I’m definitely saying he beats Aldrin and Armstrong by a moon-slide
