Haiku : Moon (2)

1969
man stepped on the cratered moon
do you remember?

haiku by M. Nakazato LaFreniere

July 20, 1969, Mission Commander Neil Armstrong stepped on the moon and space travel wasn’t science-fiction any more

 

With the help of the University of Texas-Dallas, NASA has digitized all the audio from the Apollo 11 flight and their stay on the moon communications with the ground crew; all 19,000 hours of it.  You can even download it if you want : Apollo 11 MOCR ACR Collection.  It’s pretty raw.  It took five years to turn the audiotapes into digital files.  Honestly, you’d have to be seriously OCD to go through it all to find the clips you’d like.

here is the landing
