One small step for man…one giant leap for mankind!

On this day, July 20th 1969, human beings landed on the damned moon!   Yeah, I know that wasn’t the most scientific statement ever uttered…but we landed on the damned moon! 

I mean, if you think about it, it really might be the most impressive thing we humans have ever done!   What else you got?!   The Egyptian pyramids are cool…and Stonehenge is pretty badass…the Great Wall of China rocks…but this is the MOON!   We went to THE MOON!

Anyway, take a look at this restored footage of that amazing and historic moment on this day in 1969.
