Commemorating the Ultimate Geek-Project: Apollo 11: "Thirty-nine years ago, on July 20, 1969, two ultra-geeks landed upon Luna, Earth's moon. Their mission was called Apollo 11. While the vast majority of the press at the time was devoted to Armstrong actually setting foot upon the Moon, the really crucial aspect of the landing on the Sea of Tranquility was just that, the landing. This day commemorates the culmination of the science, technology, and massive national effort that went into the American Space Program."
