Walter and the Moon

If only Walter Cronkite could have lived a few more days, to somehow provide his perspective on the 40th anniversary of Apollo 11.

Any kid growing up in the 60s will remember his coverage of every space flight. His sonorous voice, attention to detail and eloquent linguistics set him apart from the other network anchors. He showed just the right balance between the facts of the story and its emotional, psychological and scientific significance.

Click Here to see a short clip of him in 1998 reflecting on what it was like to cover that event.
