When Apollo Rose Into The Sky

Forty years ago, I stood in the front yard with the rest of my family and a transistor radio to watch Apollo 11 climb into the sky over Florida, beginning one of humanity's great adventures. Though I've watched many more Space Shuttle launches, the sight of a Saturn V is still more impressive and a memory I will long relish. I'm sure even Kevin would understand.

Here's to you, Neal, Buzz and Michael.

You can see lots of cool pictures at the Project Apollo Archive.

The only Daria fanfiction I can think of that includes the mission is Thea Zara and Deref's "All My Children" story, "The Moon in the Man."
