It was July 20, 1969 when my family sat around the phonograph black and white television combination to witness one of mans most spectacular feats, one in which the world has never seen before.  Two American astronauts were about to put their lunar spacecraft (the Lunar Module they named Eagle)  on the surface of the moon named the Sea of Tranquility (the Lunar Module they named Eagle),   Our only view was through a black and white television that received only three channels, but it was the only technology at that time.  I was glued to every image and word reported by Walter Cronkite and Astronaut Walter "Wally" Schirra.  In fact, so was the rest of  the world.

Now at 60 years old, I still feel the excitement of rockets lifting off  and walking around those artifacts that were used to make President Kennedy's promise a reality.  Here are some of those pieces.
