A THROWBACK SCREEN SHOT.

That probably wasn't even a word in 1969.


That's a pocket camera photograph of a television screen showing a video feed from the Moon as it happened, from my fortieth anniversary post.

Ten years on, and you can't find an active Saturn V rocket, and U.S. astronauts are booking passage on Russian capsules.  But there's a Big Boy back in steam.
