I could have sworn we had a thread for this, but it seems to no longer exist, if it ever did at all.

Don't worry, in 6 1/2 months, "50 years ago" will start pointing to the 1970s, so the old thread will be locked and we can continue with this one.

And by the way, it was July 20th, not June 20th, when Neil Armstrong made his historic moonwalk. You're off by one month.
