Apollo 11 Anniversary

This week marks the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. Were you watching it live as the images were beamed back to Earth on July 20, 1969? Maybe you have never seen the original broadcast.  If you would like to see it again, or for the first time, you can now view NASA’s restored clips of the transmission online.
