Apollo 11

50 years ago, on this very day, the Apollo 11 was launched. 4 days later, it would be the first manned landing on the moon.

You can watch the whole launch here (with the actual take off around 3:27:10):

In the meantime, I spent (some of) the afternoon shooting water rockets with a group of campers. It was marvellous.
