1930 - AUG.25,2012:

First man on the moon, pretty freakin’ incredible! I remember at the time (7/20/69) I was working at Caldor Dept. Store in Norwalk CT. Back then, the TVs were all able to pick up whatever channel was available, not all showing the same TV show as they do now. However, on that day, we turned all the TVs to whatever stations were covering it live, and pretty much everyone in the store, employees and customers stood in the TV dept and watched Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon.
 What a moment!
To me, that was probably the one defining moment of all the years of space exploration, and will probably not be topped until a man steps on the surface of Mars…
