• No, I was just a baby then. I was born August 12, 1968, and the Moon Landing was July 20, 1969.
    • dalcocono
      We share that birthday, except I turned 20 on the day you were born.
  • No, I couldn't see that far.
    • Linda Joy
      lol Thanks, I needed that! And on that note I'm going to go chill.
  • Yes. My daughter was born the same day.
  • I saw the moon landing televised in 1969.
  • Wasn't alive but, would've been cool seeing it live. Have seen videos of it though.
  • Yes and my daughter was born the next day.
    • Linda Joy
      earlier you said the same day.
  • Yup, I saw it on tv.
  • yes I watched it on TV when I was a kid. I wish I had known the part all the black ladies in Hidden Figures had played a part in it and the earlier space flights.
    • Linda Joy
      Just the black ladies? In a program that big it doesn't matter what race you are, they are only going to accept those who are as qualified as they can find!! Everyone in that program was a hero and extremely smart! And there were probably many other races involved. I'd like to know more about all of them, but that might be an overwhelming amount of data! I'd be honored to just serve them lunch!!
  • Yes. Barely remember seeing it, but I DO remember seeing it. I DO remember being BORED watching it. Didn't stop me from earning a degree in physics, though.
    • Linda Joy
      It definitely wasn't an action movie, but if you were old enough to comprehend what was actually happening I'd find that exciting!
      In my (7-year-old) eyes, it was a bunch of guys talking - with lots of static and static-y images - to a bunch of other guys. I mean: it was neat that they got to the Moon safe, but then it was just like,"Look, ma, I took a step! Look, the ground is covered in dust." Not exactly heart-pounding action - like, say, an attack by alien ninja dinosaurs.
  • Yes. I was 13 years old.
  • I did, yes. It was quite an exciting day. I'd been following the space program since early childhood, since Alan Shepherd's flight, and this was an amazing climactic moment. I won't forget it.
  • I did watch the moon landing on TV in 1969. As to progress, we are still using combustion to propel ourselves through the air and beyond. Given the vast distances to other planets, we will need to harness some other force to reach such places within a lifetime.
    • Linda Joy
      Black/dark energy.
  • No I didn't. It wasn't televised. Camera's weren't on the Moon until our astronauts put them there. Nobody "saw" the moon landing, they heard about it yes but seeing it was impossible. lol
    • Linda Joy
      Where do / did you live?

      The landing itself was not broadcast, but Armstrong's first steps were.... "When the Eagle spacecraft touched down on the Moon's surface on 20 July 1969, a television camera mounted on its side captured the first tentative steps and words of astronaut Neil Armstrong and sent them across hundreds of thousands of miles to hundreds of millions of pairs of eyes glued to television sets."
    • Hulk70166
      I was wrong and so were you. The actual landing WAS TELEVISED. The Camera WAS attached to the leg of the lunar lander:
  • Yes. But, I was only eight-years old.
  • Yes, I was teaching school at Eagle Valley High School in Gypsum, CO.
  • I wasn't alive then. It was 20 years before I was born.
  • Yes, on a crappy B&W TV.
  • Yes I watched the blurry live black & white pictures sent back from photocathode vidicon type cameras on the lander on a big screen (21 inch picture tube) RCA. But if you look those up now you will see they are very poor quality.& couldn't follow fast motion without a delay effect. we had to wait for actual movie film to return in the Apollo 11 command capsule& be developed to see clear movies of what actually happened. Its amazing to think that we could send people to the Moon 52 years ago but we cant do it now.
  • Yes I saw it.
  • Yes, I was teaching high school in Colorado at the time.
  • yes on live tv
