Watch the Apollo 11 Landing Live, Just as Cronkite Called It

Apollo 11 On TV

Kottke.org

Genius idea from Jason Kottke--he's synced up Walter Cronkite's live call of the moon landing on CBS to real time, forty years forward. And they're just about to land.

Now you can see exactly millions around the world saw (mostly, it turns out, artists' renditions with live telemetry and radio transmissions). Thrilling stuff, goosebumps-inducing.

The moon landing portion just concluded, but be sure to tune in again around 10:10pm EST for the moon-walk footage.
