July 21st 1969 - Apollo 11

Quote:
Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that landed the first two people on the Moon.
Mission commander Neil Armstrong and pilot Buzz Aldrin, both American, landed the lunar module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC.
Armstrong became the first person to step onto the lunar surface six hours after landing on July 21 at 02:56:15 UTC; Aldrin joined him about 20 minutes later.
They spent about two and a quarter hours together outside the spacecraft, and collected 47.5 pounds (21.5 kg) of lunar material to bring back to Earth.
Michael Collins piloted the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface.
Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21.5 hours on the lunar surface before rejoining Columbia in lunar orbit.

Yeah, how can a flag fly with no wind? And the shadows are all wrong. Plus my mailman's babysitter's great uncle's neighbor's cousin works at the Hollywood studio here he heard about the subterfuge.

Today's NASA Astro pic is remarkable in its simplicity.
I have always figured in the back of all the minds involved, especially Armstrong's and Aldrin's was the thought:
"Well damn, this SOB really works!"

If they did it (went to the moon) within 7-8 years in the 60s (with 60s tech) why is it gonna take 15 years to do it (go back to the moon) again in the 21st century?

Because it's not a race anymore.

And we will want to do more than take selfies when we get there this time.

Can you imagine trying to make The Honeymooners in today's social climate?

Or a lot of other shows from the Golden age of TV.
Lots of people found them silly and stupid but not offensive.

King of Queens? I don't watch many sitcoms, but I suspect the formula is still in heavy rotation. There was more to the Honeymooners than Ralph threatening to beat up Alice, and it could survive the removal of that aspect.

If you're talking about making exactly the original Honeymooners, I think that a bigger obstacle would be that the cast is all dead. But if you're talking about a show like the Honeymooners, I think we never really stopped making them.
