Or at least that’s how I heard it, 40 years ago, when Astronaut Neil Armstrong jumped off the pad of the Lunar Modula of Apollo 11 and started kicking around moon dust.

Happy 40th Anniversary, Landing On the Moon.

    I was 4, sitting on the floor of our rented bungalow in Ocean Beach, NJ, listening on the AM radio. I can’t remember much more than that.

    Of course, it could very well have been how The Onion chronicled the event (possibly NSFW depending where you work.).

    They’ve just remastered the original moon-landing video. Even NASA is in the 21st century!
