@f00l Sorry, I didn’t mean any from your list, but a lot of content free junk I keep coming across. The one I mentioned was from The Atlantic. It was a horrible piece of writing that wandered around and never actually made the point it claimed in the headline. So I have to assume it was the lost lead the article ended with.
The DVD “For all Mankind” is a fantastic video with astronaut home videos of the moon shot and on the moon. They have two things on there. The videos and then a documentary about it. If the full thing is for sale somewhere cheap or online somewhere it is worth watching! Chatter around stepping on the moon (which has been edited out of the link below) was interesting. Something along the lines of it might have been one small step for you but it would have been a bigger step for me (would need to watch the DVD to tell you exactly who said what).
Here is the documentary part of this:
The full DVD is 79 min long and the Criterion Collection put it out. Says was directed by AL Reinert, 1989
This is an older video I got when my daughter was young (adopted as a grade schooler from SE Asia who had lived a stone aged existence there). We were walking down the street and were looking at the especially large full moon that was low in the sky in front of us. I told her men had gone to the moon. She told me it wasn’t possible because there wasn’t a ladder long enough. So I bought this video.
I watched the moon landing (and the events leading up to it) live. Here’s a tidbit that is seldom mentioned: when the door that held the camera that captured Neil Armstrong stepping on the moon first deployed, the image broadcast across the world was upside down. They flipped the orientation before he actually left the LEM.
