It seems like the blink of an eye to me – albeit a slow blink – but it’s been four decades since Apollo 11. NASA will be observing the event with an audio webcast of the sound of the entire mission, starting at 7:32 EDT tomorrow morning. From their press release:
The audio retrospective will begin at 6:32 a.m. CDT Thursday, July 16, two hours before the spacecraft launched. The audio will continue through splashdown of the mission at 11:51 a.m. CDT Friday, July 24, and recovery of the crew shortly afterward. The Web stream will feature the communications between the astronauts and ground teams, and commentary from Mission Control at NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston.
