Cool Site Of The Day

Nearly 40 years ago, a nearly 2 year old boy went to his dad's closet, grabbed one of his dad's ties, and wrapped it loosely around his own neck. The kid wanted to be very formal for what he was about to witness.

A few minutes later, Neil Armstrong took a small step off the footpad of the LEM.

Forty years ago tomorrow, that journey to the Sea of Tranquility began.

In honor and commemoration of Apollo 11, the John F. Kennedy Museum has created The site is self-described as a real time, interactive recreation of the Apollo 11 mission. Looks very cool.

And that now 41 year old kid won't have his tie on at 9:56 PM on the 20th.
