Point and Shoot the Moon

Today's anniversary of one of the greatest events in history (humanly speaking) will soon fade from memory --- again. Former space nerds are going goo-ga over all things moon-landing-ish this week. Ken Rockwell, camera reviewer and space exploration/technology nerd, has given real life to the events, writing details of the chronology of the landing that you most likely don't know. Makes for pretty exciting reading --- for us nerds, anyway.

The pictures are amazing when enlarged, thanks to the Hasselblad camera Neil Armstrong used.

Wish I had been there to take them - Neil was a test pilot, not a snapshooter.
