Yes, as the story goes I was sat on my mums knee 40 years ago as a bub watching perhaps the most momentus event in the entire history of civilisation. Life from Earth set foot on our moon!

The image below is one of many from this event (actually this one is from Apollo 8) that present to us an idea, an amazing idea. Seeing our world over the horizon of the moon - an image that not only required us to be there, but to follow all the evolution, technology and culture required to support such a feat. It gives me chills just to think about it.

Happy Moon Landing Day! - see NASA for more.
