1969. The year Led Zeppelin launched in the record shops and Apollo 11 launched to the moon. Which means you have to be over 50 to have memories of either event, hahaha. As a kid I hated getting up early during summer vacation. It would take an act of god or mother nature (Earthquake!) to get me out of bed before 9 am. There were a few exceptions...going surfing or going on a camping trip. The other exception was the Apollo mission launches. They usually happened around 6 am PST. 50 years ago on July 16, 1969 I gladly got up at 6 am for the Apollo 11 rocket launch. This was the BIG ONE...the first manned expedition to the moon. If you didn't get goosebumps you weren't human. The launch occurred exactly at 6:32 am PST...13:32 UTC (or Greenwich Mean Time). So fellow Forum Members...who else was up watching the Apollo 11 launch 50 years ago? Was it a big deal or no deal in your household/city/country?
