Today's picture on Wikipedia is the Parkes Observatory@DownUnder, a radio telescope which was essensial for receiving signals from the moon during the first hours after landing.

BTW: One of the nice things about today is that most watchers won't have the slightest idea about where they were back then, and for the huge majority this is not due to old age. Muahahahahaha!!!!!!

pibbur who wonders where the corwin was. Assuming that he knows.

20 July Plot
On 20 July 1944, Claus von Stauffenberg and other conspirators attempted to assassinate Adolf Hitler, Führer of Nazi Germany, inside his Wolf's Lair field headquarters near Rastenburg, East Prussia. The name Operation Valkyrie—originally referring to part of the conspiracy—has become associated with the entire event.

The apparent aim of the assassination attempt was to wrest political control of Germany and its armed forces from the Nazi Party (including the SS) and to make peace with the Western Allies as soon as possible. The details of the conspirators' peace initiatives remain unknown, but they would have included unrealistic demands for the confirmation of Germany's extensive annexations of European territory.

The plot was the culmination of efforts by several groups in the German resistance to overthrow the Nazi German government. The failure of the assassination attempt and the intended military coup d'état that was to follow led the Gestapo to arrest more than 7,000 people, of whom they executed 4,980.

A few months ago, when stepping out of the bus, I invented a reverse saying of that : "A big step for me, but a small one for humankind !"
I'm physically not very big, so some steps that are normal for normally grown people can be a bit bigger for me.
It's a thing like having to fetch something from the top tier of the grocery shelves. Or in a bookstore.
