36 Years Ago Today

The Apollo 11 landings took place.

Only realized it because of the Google Moon link!

To read more about, check out their Google Moon FAQ which mentions: We usually don't announce future products in advance, but in this case, yes, we can confirm that on July 20th, 2069, in honor of the 100th anniversary of mankind's first manned lunar landing, Google will fully integrate Google Local search capabilities into Google Moon, which will allow our users to quickly find lunar business addresses, numbers and hours of operation, among other valuable forms of Moon-oriented local information.

We shall see if we really get that far in the space program by then!
