July 20th 1969 was a day which our civilisation will never forget. Everyone withing viewing distance of a television (by that I mean an estimated 500 million people worldwide) was transfixed by the spectacle of mankind’s first step onto an alien world, our moon. Unfortunately I was not born until 13 years after the space race was sorted out by Neil Armstrong’s intrepid boot, and as such I view the episode with awe and have always wondered what it might have been like to live through this incredibly exciting moment in human history.
Well, in a little over a month I will be transported 40 years back in time when I load the “Moonwalk One” DVD into my PC and watch in awed silence as I relive the glory-days of manned space exploration. I can’t wait to see for myself in digitally restored glory. Are you as excited as I am?
