clare de lune

i'm sorry, i know i keep chirrupping about this whole LANDING ON THE MOON thing but there's so much incredible stuff out there about it right now that i feel as though it's happening now. i'm only just beginning to comprehend how staggering a feat it really was...typically late to the party.

i've only just begun to poke around the incredible site we choose the moon but while i'm chipping away at work i can't stop listening to the audio archive of the launch. hearing the astronauts updating houston about their altitude and progress, and hearing the hushed burn of the engines below the voices, makes it stunningly real.

also, google earth has released a new 'moon' area, including tours of the landing site narrated by the astronauts.

lunatics rejoice.
