13 Minutes To The Moon

Following on the space theme, I’ve been enjoying the 13 Minutes To The Moon podcast from the BBC. It focuses on the last 13 minutes of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and takes you through what was going on, and how everything came about.

As someone who grew up after the moon landing it’s something I took for granted. After listening to the podcast I realised how little I actually knew outside of the popular sound bites.

I can’t embed the podcast directly, but here’s the Hans Zimmer theme tune.

Anyway, the podcast is well worth a listen. I’m now looking forward to watching the new Apollo 11 documentary:

Note to self: don’t read the YouTube comments on moon landing videos.
