Just a quick update ..... the boys are in Lunar Orbit and prepping the Eagle lander for its journey to the Lunar Surface, not too many hours from "now" .... fifty years hence.

Well they landed on the Moon about ten hours ago, and started walking on the Moon about three hours ago. They are now back in the Lunar Module putting samples away and getting out of their EVA suits. Soon they will get some much needed rest for about 8 hours, though I don't think I could sleep a wink, even though they're no doubt very tired, as they've had quite a day. About twelve hours from now they will launch off the Moon and return to Lunar orbit, and I'll certainly be watching that. Might just be the scariest part of the whole mission.

Meanwhile, here is the final installment of the four part Bill Whittle series "What We Saw":
