One small step

I’m a day late on this but yesterday was the 39th anniversary of one of the greatest events in the history of science – the very first lunar landing by Apollo 11. I think I can be forgiven for forgetting this particular anniversary as I was only about six weeks old at the time. Luckily for me, though, there’s some video evidence to remind us of what happened on the 20th July 1969.

Apparently there are plans afoot to develop a permanently manned lunar station some time around the year 2020 or so. I can hardly wait to see that!
