Ten random things: July 20

Ten men who walked on the moon:

  1. Alan B. Shepard, Jr
  2. Charles M. Duke Jr.
  3. Neil Armstong
  4. John W. Young
  5. Edgar D. Mitchell
  6. Alan L. Bean
  7. Eugene A. Cernan
  8. Edwin E. Aldrin, Jr.
  9. James B. Irwin
  10. Harrison H. Schmitt

Exactly 40 years ago today -- and I do mean exactly, because I queued this up to automatically post at the very time the Eagle landed, 4:17:40 Eastern -- the Apollo 11 Lunar Module touched down on the surface of the moon. About six-and-a-half hours later, Neil Armstrong made his descent to the lunar surface.
