one small step

today is the 34th anniversary of the apollo 11 moon landing. (or is it?)

by happy coincidence, i watched the dish last night: a fun movie about the radio telescope in parkes, australia that was the primary receiving station for the moon landing. it's a small-town-meets-big-event movie that doesn't look down on the inhabitants, or portray the outsiders as mustache-twirling villains or aloof sophisticates. everyone is very human—good intentioned and a little awkward.
