    Default Go To The Moon - July 16th 9:32am

    We Choose the Moon: Celebrating the 40th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Landing

    Hi everyone. Our advertising agency has spent a long time working on this, and we want to get the word out there. We have come up with an awesome site to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon. This is a pretty cool site with lots of information, following the mission exactly as it happened 40 years ago. The journey is 4 days long, and very interesting.

    Just thought I would share this with everyone. Pleae share with friends and family who also might be interested in this.



    Follow the astronauts on Twitter. We’ve pulled out over 1,000 bits of dialogue between the astronauts and mission control, and will be tweeting them out in real time, as they said them.

    Sign up for e-mail updates. The site’s not designed for you to sit and watch for 4 straight days—though you certainly could, and the audio transmissions and tweets will be there running live—but rather to check in at 11 of the most amazing points in the journey. We’ve rendered these out in beautiful 3d animation, and the e-mails will tell you when they are about to happen.

    Download the Desktop Mission Tracker. It tells you when key moments in the journey are coming up and keeps track of the astronauts’ tweets. And it looks really cool.

    Post the site and embed the app on facebook, and share with your friends.

    Launch is at 9:32 a.m. EST on Thursday, July 16, exactly 40 years after Apollo 11.

    That site is awesome!

    I'm going to pass the link onto my grandpa- he worked for NASA and actually worked on Apollo 11. I'm sure he'll love it.

    The site looks really neat. It's too bad we never really went to the moon.

    Those images were amazing lilstrlett! The one of Egypt was so surprising- I never thought it would look like that!

    Exact day, 40 years ago
    Today is my brother's 40th birthday and he never let us forget this historic moment

    I just checked the site out for the first time. It's really cool. Those pictures from boston.com were amazing. My friends are on their way home from Egypt right now! That picture above Egypt was awesome!

    Hmm... I wonder the real reason behind Buzz's statement that future trips to the moon would be a waste of time.
