On this night, back in 1969, I sat with my family to watch this extraordinary historical event unfold. As we viewed the ghostly images on our black-and-white television, we were understandably nervous that something might go wrong—and utterly awestruck by the enormity of the accomplishment. I was only 9 years old when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the moon, while Michael Collins orbited above in the command module that would return all three safely to the earth. But my memories of that night are vivid. The wonders of Apollo 11 never cease to amaze.
