The Moon Launch

January 15, 2010

High speed cameras captured this slow-motion video of the Apollo 11 (first two segments) and Apollo 8 (final segment) launches.  Stunning.

As you watch the first two segments, think of the profound disappointment Collins, Aldrin, and Armstrong must have felt that July morning, knowing they were going to miss Sha Na Na’s performance at Woodstock.

Thanks to Fuck Yeah Space! for the link.
