Just watched In the Shadow of the Moon by Ron Howard about the moon landing. Odd editing, they cut away from the landing of the Eagle to other moon flights… kinda left the guys on the moon for a moment. Anyway, good film. It seem we don’t make people like that anymore.

If you are old enough to remember it, the landing really united the planet for a short while.
