The Eagle Has Landed

A short time before he died, Neil Armstrong gave a presentation in Australia matching the footage of his landing on the moon against a modern Google map of the moon.  Anyone who has any doubts that the moon landing was real should watch it at this link. The browser will not automatically open on the correct episode. Be sure to choose Episode 4 in the videos below.

And thanks to David, we have these remarkably evocative verses from Robert Heinlein to imagine them to:

The Green Hills of Earth

Let the sweet fresh breezes heal me

As they rove around the girth

Of our lovely mother planet

Of the cool, green hills of Earth.

We’ve tried each spinning space mote

And reckoned its true worth:

Take us back again to the homes of men

On the cool, green hills of Earth.

The arching sky is calling

Spacemen back to their trade.


And the lights below us fade.

Out ride the sons of Terra,

Far drives the thundering jet,

Up leaps a race of Earthmen,

Out, far, and onward yet —

We pray for one last landing

On the globe that gave us birth;

Let us rest our eyes on the fleecy skies

And the cool, green hills of Earth.

Robert A. Heinlein
