I had a little trouble with the audio but WOW, the video was incredible and it's so nice to have an expert narrating what is happening. 7 1/2 millions pounds of thrust, it's hard to wrap my brain around that statistic!!

llamafighter, did you see the IMAX Hubble Telescope? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SO4ZWJlROwE We want to see it one of these weekends, the previews were amazing (although not the $30 price of 2 tickets).

Anyway, cool video of Apollo 11, thanks for posting it.
