40 Years after Apollo 11: July 11, part 1

I wrote a series of posts about Apollo 11 on the 40th anniversary of the mission back in 2009. It’s a cool story. So here it is again, day by day, using only pictures I could confirm were taken on the day in question…

Here are Neil and Buzz in the Lunar Module flight simulator at the Cape. They kept practicing, simulating the landing, until just a couple of days before launch. They also tried to simulate every sort of emergency or glitch that could pop up. There was one that was almost missed… but we’ll get to that on July 20, landing day…
