Found on YouTube -- "Apollo 11: The Complete Descent"

I wanted to post this back on July 20th, the date of the 50th Anniversary of the first manned lunar landing, but we were having YouTube and Vimeo embedding issues then. Now that those are fixed, I'm happy to share this program, an excellent multimedia presentation that combines the air-to-ground radio loops of the spacecraft with the flight controller's loop and the public affairs officer. Put all three together like this and it gives quite an effect. Still a nail-biter after all these years! Enjoy.

Thats the best account of the Apollo 11 landing I've ever seen - almost as tense as the real thing was. Well spotted.

Landing...landing?
Are you saying we actually landed on the Moon? :p

Re: Found on YouTube -- "Apollo 11: The Complete Descent"

My favorite joke about that: of course everybody knows that NASA hired Stanley Kubrick to produce the "faked" lunar landing. But what's not well known is that Stanley insisted on shooting on location. So we went anyway.

That was surprisingly good! Amazing really when you consider the technology involved. The RF side impressed me - aiming dishes from inside the lander.

Fantastic clip. We really came together as a country to land on the moon (and return safely). Wish we had more of that unity and can-do spirit right now.

Amen to that, Oren. Your post reminds me that I need to add a "like / upvote post" button.
