Today, July 20th, 2009, is the 40th anniversary of humankind’s first landing on the moon — a momentous achievement to be sure, and in my opinion the greatest in all of human history.
There’s a lot of news coverage for the event, of course, so this post is mainly to direct you to a few of the most interesting articles I have come across. Enjoy!
