Space - the Final Frontier!

Captain's Log: 21-July-2010.

41 years ago today (Australian time) Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon.  "The Eagle has landed" - heard those famous words on the radio one cold Melbourne winter morning as I got ready for school.

Listen and watch the excitement of that 1969 morning!  What genuine excitement we all felt!  PEOPLE were on the Moon! That thing in the sky - two guys were sitting in a tiny metal craft perched there on the surface. Incredible.
