45 years ago today Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong were the first humans to walk on the moon. There are some who wonder if it was worth it, others who wonder when we are going back, and still others who don't believe it even happened. (watch Buzz punch an annoying skeptic here)

A few years back, Mike did a slideshow on the anniversary of the event, From the Earth to the Moon: The Beginnings of Space Travel

We did a little roundup as part of the obituary for Neil Armstrong.
