Moon Landing Retraced In Real Time On Anniversary

WeChooseTheMoon.org will go live at 8:02 a.m. ET Thursday, a full 90 minutes before the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch from Cape Canaveral, Fla. The site will track the capsule's entire flight from Earth to the Moon, the moon landing and Neil Armstrong's walk — in real time, only 40 years later. “Putting a man on the moon really did unite the globe,” said Thomas Putnam, director of the JFK Library. “We hope to use the Internet to do the same thing.”

The site will include animated recreations and archival footage of the 4 day mission including radio transmissions between the crew. I wonder how many people will be calling in sick on Thursday?
