We Choose the Moon


40 years ago, the Man set foot on the Moon.

I hardly imagine what could Armstrong and Aldrin feel, in their uncomfortable space suit, between excitement, fear, concentration, pression of the mission, during the few hours of their extravehicular activities...
To celebrate that anniversary, a beautiful website has been set online, featuring dozens of never seen before pictures (specially of the LEM construction and testings). Hace a look here : WeChooseTheMoon.com. Web site's online for one year, don't miss it!

On the same theme, the brilliant Boston Big Picture made a special gallery : Remembering Apollo 11.

If, by chance, you can read French, don't miss the airline captain Jacques Darolles story on PilotList.org about his meeting with Buzz Aldrin on a Paris-Nice flight...

Finally, for those who still think all these pictures were staged on Earth, have a look at the footpath of the astronauts still visible on the surface of our satellite...
