We Choose The Moon



Relive the moon landing in real-time

Jul. 13, 2009 (11:38 am) By: Brian Osborne

In honor of the 40th anniversary of the moon landing the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum has launched a new website. The goal of the website is to allow visitors to experience the Apollo 11 mission in real time. In fact, the website will go live at 9:32am on July 16th which is exactly 40 years to the minute after the historic launch.
Brian’s Opinion
What a fantastic way for children born after the moon landing to experience it as it was experienced by millions of others almost 40 years ago. It’s also a great way for those who experienced it 40 years ago to remember what it was like to be a part of an event that was so historic. The good news is that thanks to modern technology the moon mission can be experienced in a way which would have been inconceivable 40 years ago.
