Apocalypse Then: Apollo 11 Moon Landing

On this day, in 1969, Apollo 11 landed on the moon. The shuttle contained the now three famous astronauts- Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins.

It's been 40 years since this great day, and now there are plans to go back to the moon and make a more established presence there.

It's time to resurrect space travel. Well, maybe after we've sorted out the recession problems.

Just as I predicted in a daydream, without reading it anywhere first, a game is in the making to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the moon landings. It's called Shattered Horizon, by Futuremark Game Studios.

After all this time, my dad still doesn't believe that they landed on the moon. He subscribes to the conspiracy theory that they were faked and filmed in a studio that mimics the moon's environment with zero gravity- possibly Area 51.

He also says that it was just a publicity or propaganda stunt so that the US would be recognised as a superior world power to the USSR.

What does AAA stand for?

It's not an abbreviation of anything. It just means the best of the best...
