Audio and images of the Apollo 11 landing.

I don’t know what is more incredible about this: the fact that they landed with less than 30 seconds of fuel left, or the fact that they recalculated on the spot to avoid a boulder field the computer could not see. 

“Houston… Tranquility Base here…. the Eagle has landed.”
