Moon landing anniversary celebrated

Apollo 11 landed on the moon July 20, 1969, the culmination of President John Kennedy's challenge to get there by the end of the decade. Anyone who was old enough at the time remembers where they were that day.

Here are a few links to web pages and articles published in honor of the 40th anniversary of that epic mission:
