    I recorded some Moon landing shows off TV the other day, haven't had a chance to watch them though.

    I also have a PSVR experience called "Apollo 11" which is a condensed version of their flight, from take off to landing on the moon. Being in VR you really get to appreciate just how brave those guys were in the capsule etc.
    An age where they were looking to the stars and trying to climb to them, now we as a society look to the wrong stars and spend far too much time trying to bring things down.

    Very brave men. It must take truly exceptional qualities to be launched into space in the full knowledge that if anything went wrong there would be a good chance that you wouldn't be coming back. It is sobering to think that the powers that be took the possibility of failure of Apollo XI seriously enough that a speech had already been prepared for President Nixon to deliver in that eventuality--thank goodness he never had to read it.
