Forty years ago today, Neil Armstrong became the first human to set foot on the moon. In honor of this anniversary, here’s a nice little (also world-changing and historic) video:

I’ll be honest, it gets me a little choked up and goose-bumpy to watch it. As do these A-mazing pictures.

According to the NASA website, Armstrong actually set foot on the moon at around 10:56pm EDT. I suggest that around that time tonight you all head outside and take a minute to think about how crazy/incredible that moment was.

  1. I grew up in a family that was “meh” about the whole space thing; although I WAS lucky enough to be dragged, at the crack of dawn, to the first space shuttle landing in the middle of the California desert.

    Only now, as what some might call a “grownup”, have I come to appreciate the magnitude of space travel and how, as humans, curiosity is one of our greatest gifts.
