I was at summer camp in New Hampshire.

They brought us into the rec hall where a couple hundred of us stared, bleary-eyed, at a single black and white monitor. They said we would remember this all our lives.

And I do. It’s as if it happened yesterday.

Today in 1969, the Eagle landed on the moon. (h/t Instapundit)

Here are three versions depending on your 2014 attention span, which anecdotally I believe to be much shorter than 1969 attention spans: Really short, medium and long.

Short (2 minutes)

Medium (9 minutes)

Long (42 minutes)
