Think back, if you remember the day July 20, 1969. Or imagine, if you weren't born yet. It is a Sunday evening in the middle of a sultry summer.

An untold number of engineers and technicians are working behind the scenes to beam their live pictures from the moon back to Earth. Anchors like Walter Cronkite are narrating every step. And the family members of the astronauts are watching Cronkite to see what's about to happen.
