HEARD THIS?

Apollo 11 Audio Available Online

Another great leap for mankind? In celebration of the momentous 1969 mission to the moon, the original audio feed between mission control and the Apollo 11 spacecraft is being streamed on Wechoosethemoon.org, a presentation of AOL and the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library & Museum. NASA's Web site is also streaming a simulcast of the mission. On both sites, the 109 hours of audio began on Thursday and will continue until Monday night. The audio stream—which features astronauts discussing spacecraft maneuvers, sightings of Earth and even coffee breaks—is the first of its kind, and made possible by the continued digitization of NASA’s audio records. It's one part of a larger tribute to the mission's 40th anniversary happening this week.
