We went to the moon

moonToday marks the 40th anniversary of humankind's most awesome trip and our community has the lunar spirit.

The culture vultures on Thorn Tree are sharing their favourite songs about the moon and plans are afoot for some full moon parties.

The travel techies are chatting about the computing power behind Apollo, while some of our Australian branch residents are using the moment to reflect on 40 years of progress - and how progressive it's actually been.

What about you? What are your moon memories? Favourite star-gazing locations? Would you take a trip to space if you could?

If you'd like to relive the adventure, we like this great website - wechoosethemoon.org
