T-Minus Awesome

059b/1247593611-apollo-11-patch.jpg This place right here is the best website on the Internet right now and for the next week-plus. In celebration of the impending 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission to the moon (you remember the one: Neil Armstrong, American flag, footprints, sound stage in California), the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum is recreating the event as if it were happening in realtime in our techno-geek age. Website, Twitter updates, photos, audio, and who knows what else will unspool 40 years to the moment after it really happened.

The launch is July 16th at 8:32 a.m. CST. Right now everything is in the prelaunch stage. Armstrong put boot to moon on July 20th.
