to the moon

Good grief it’s been a long time since I updated this thing. Too long. But in the name of progress, I’ve made some subtle changes to the site (most notably: no more flexible width), and I plan on finally spending a bit more time around here in the days and months to come… So stay tuned!

In the meantime, check out this video from the launch of Apollo 11 on July 16, 1969. This is an HD transfer from a 16mm original that was running at 500 fps; this 8 minute clip shows roughly 30 seconds of real time. Sweeeeet! Big ups to Mark at Spacecraft Films for the amazing clip.
