Awesome!
I have a wacky idea, why don't NSF cover live (+40 years) the launch of Apollo 11 with this as the celebration of Apollo 11? Similar coverage to a shuttle launch.
That be awesome!

That's sweet.

I had a similar notion last week to post one image per day from 40 years ago to the day on my personal website to help get family and friends thinking more about it, with appropriate links to more info. Nowhere near as involved as that site, but I like to suppose that great minds think alike.

Obviously, launch, EVA, and recovery were easy to find good images for, but the six days of cruise are taking a little more imagination.

Some of the images in this website are ones I haven't come across elsewhere yet. I need to do some more digging around.

Yea that might be a problem. But heck, its NSF, they'll find it. ;)
