Apollo 11 Realtime "Live" Mission Video/Audio

In case anyone has missed this, here is a nice "live" version of the Apollo 11 mission (audio/video), run in realtime, but 50 years shifted:

Share and Enjoy!

Re: APOLLO 11 (Official Trailer)

It is opening at the Palace Balwyn in Melbourne on Thursday 18th July. I would highly recommend this cinema. Really nice and you can get a wine, coffee, cocktail or beer to have during the movies. Very civilised.

Thanks Derek. Unfortunately I don't to Facebook. I only have so much bandwidth. Hope it raises awareness in Oz about HPR.

Re: Hi from Pennsylvania

Re: Derek's Level 2 Build

Looks like a well thought-out design for the NC. Designing for 3D printing is a great paradigm shift and fun too!
