NASA Marks Apollo 11 Anniversary With Restored Video Footage - Science News | Science & Technology | Technology News - FOXNews.comNASA Marks Apollo 11 Anniversary With Restored Video Footage
Forty years ago Thursday, Apollo 11 blasted off on its 280,000-mile journey, fulfilling President Kennedy's 1961 call to reach the moon by the end of the decade.
To commemorate the anniversary, NASA released newly restored video footage of the Apollo 11 moon landings — but the fabled "lost" moon tapes weren't among them.
Ok, so this isnt earth-splitting news.
But it IS historically significant and, on this day, deserves mention.
Hats off to the can-do engineers that built these ships, and the steely-eyed-missile men that rode in them.
Sadly, all are relics from a by-gone era.
