Going Old-School for Apollo 11 Anniversary

ApolloXILiveTVCoverage.jpgJason Kottke is going retro. In honor of the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11 landing on the moon, Kottke created a Web page that will allow viewers to watch television coverage of the moon landing exactly as it appeared July 20, 1969.

Kottke’s page will stream YouTube video on a screen that looks just like an old-time TV, at the same times events occurred 40 years ago.

The page already streamed the moon-landing broadcast from 4:10:30 p.m. ET-4:20:15 p.m. The “broadcast” of the moon walk will start at 10:51:27 p.m., with the first step on the moon at 10:56:15 p.m., President Richard Nixon speaking to the Eagle crew at 11:51:30 p.m. and the broadcast ending at 12:00:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Kottke is the editor of kottke.org, which he describes as “a weblog about the liberal arts 2.0.”
