    45 years ago, on the 20th at about 2:00 AM EST, we all took a giant leap on the Moon when Neil Armstrong put his foot on the lunar surface.

    I guess its old hat now with all of you not in my age group but having worked on both the land and flight systems of the Apollo mission it was and still is one of the most exciting and gratifying times in my life, aside from the births of kids and grandkids. They were heady days that's for sure.

    The internet has given a vehicle for all the conspiracy theorists to prosper .The Smithsonian has an interesting documentary at the current time which you could download which goes over all of the nut job theories out there that suggest that the moon exploration never happened.

    Buzz Aldrin had a response to one of the more idiotic accusers.
