Apollo 11 Blastoff 40 years ago

I was soooo excited when this happened! I was 9 years old. This expedition coloured my dreams of the future; my future in particular!
I borrowed the lovely photo from this site:

I was convinced that when I grew up, I'd be able to fly to the moon. Our text books were filled with stories of children who flew around in rocket ships and lived in glassed in cities. Do you remember them, especially ones written by Ray Bradbury?
For some unknown reason, my Mom believed the moon landing was false and made up in a studio. I need to ask her if she still believes that!
