My good friend, EDN blogger (Living Analog) and former IEEE Executive Committee colleague, John Dunn, saved the following 50 year-old newspapers from the first Manned Moon landing on July 20, 1969 by Apollo 11 heroes. Besides our brave astronauts, there were so many other NASA, Grumman, and other contractor heroes that made it a safe and successful mission in only a span of less than a decade after President Kennedy’s announcement to put a man on the Moon by the end of the 60s decade. We did it! With very early, new technology for the time.
Some other events were recorded on that day as well—read on in this slideshow of front page news from this amazing collection of newspapers by John Dunn.
