Happy Moon Landing Anniversary

Just a quick note to commemorate the landing of Apollo 11 on the moon 40 years ago today. I was but 15 days old when they landed and there is photographic evidence of me watching the landing (live in color from the moon on our black-and-white TV set :).
Twelve men walked on another celestial body. Let's hope that we'll soon be doing it again. Congratulations not only to those twelve men (and the six that flew above them in command modules), but the thousands that designed, built, and maintained the ships that flew them to them and safely back again.
