FOOTy Years Ago

Forty years ago astronaut Neil Armstrong did something no one had ever done before. On July 20, 1969, he set foot on the moon. The world watched and listened as Neil slowly climbed down the ladder of the lunar lander. Then, he stepped on the moon's surface where he could look up & see Earth far above him. There he said these well-known words,
"That's one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind."

If you thought it took forever waiting for a human from Earth to set foot on another celestial body, try loading nasa's website.

LIFTOFF REMINDER: Sludge's Moon Footing (OBX) is less than 3 months away!
