The Eagle Has Landed – 50 Year Anniversary

50 years ago today the United States accomplished something that no other country had ever done. A race to achieve spaceflight capability and to beat Cold War rivals attempting the same.
Below is a movie produced in 1969 which puts the whole story together using video, television broadcasts and images. I do not remember if we watched this on television but I’m pretty sure we did. I was only four years old at the time of the landing but I have a good feeling we were all sitting around a television somewhere watching as it all unfolded live.
