Incredible to think we managed to take a man to the moon 50 years ago when technology was so primitive. Even now it seems almost technologically impossible.. I'm hoping we don't go another 50 years, but hold that thought for now as there's plenty to look back on and admire what we did during those Apollo missions. The first big event of course was the launch and it looks like it would've taken place around 14:32 in England on July the 16th. So tomorrow is the 50 years since the launch. Which brings me onto a few things I've seen about to follow this momentous week. The first is a Twitter account that tweets at the 'same time' as 50 years ago. @apollo_50th The BBC also seem to have lots of programmes about the event all this week. I just watched the wonderful 'For All Mankind' on the iPlayer for the first time and the footage is just remarkable for something that took place 45-50 years ago.
