40th Anniversary of the Moon Landing Today

NASA’s Lunar Reconnaissance Orbiter or LRO passed over the Sea of Tranquility on Sunday and provided photographs of the Apollo 11 lunar module.  NASA has thoughtfully pointed out the lunar module.  Check it out below.  Also, MSNBC has an interesting story on some of the background of the moon landing.
