    Apollo 11 Soundtrack

    Sounds interesting, the composer only using technology that was available in 1969, so Moog and Mellotron:

    That was way cool. Count me in for a purchase. Modular Moog forever!

    I watched the original event live on TV as a sleepy-eyed 8-year old back in 1969. Anyone else here remember doing the same?

    I can't remember the details of the actual landing but I remember my parents waking me up and taking me out the TV on the porch at our cottage.

    On a snowy old b/w TV in my 3rd floor walkup in Lincoln Park, Chicago. Most of my energy was directed toward scratching out not much of a living playing 12-string in folk groups, but I'd cut my teeth on Heinlein so miss the moon landing? No way!

    I'm the same age, and though I remember the event happening I have no specific memories of watching the landing on tv, so I can't wait to see the new doc.

    I watched it in our high school library; I guess I was in summer school, or perhaps it was some kind of band/orchestra camp.

    I was 14 at the time and away at summer camp. The director of the encampment of the older kids rousted us all up from sleep, and we went to the "barn" to watch it. The reception in the valley of East Madison, New Hampshire, wasn't the best on that old black and white TV, but it was history right in front of our eyes. Worth waking in the middle of the night.

    Also posted in the "Movies" thread, but applicable here:

    "This website replays the Apollo 11 mission as it happened, 50 years ago. It consists entirely of historical material, all timed to Ground Elapsed Time — the master mission clock. Footage of Mission Control, film shot by the astronauts, and television broadcasts transmitted from space and the surface of the Moon, have been painstakingly placed to the very moments they were shot during the mission, as has every photograph taken, and every word spoken."
    No matter how corrupt, greedy, and heartless our government, our corporations, our media, and our religious and charitable institutions may become, the music will still be wonderful. - Kurt Vonnegut

    Yes, and I was the same age as you were.
