"Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed."

"I believe that this nation should commit itself to achieving the goal, before this decade is out, of landing a man on the Moon and returning him safely to the Earth."

-- President John F, Kennedy, in a speech to a joint session of Congress, May 25, 1961

"That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind."

-- Neil Armstrong, Mission Commander, Apollo 11, 10:56 pm (EDT), July 20, 1969

Happy 40th anniversary.
