Just leave this page open in your browser and at the appointed times (schedule is below), the broadcast will begin (no manual page refresh necessary).So the landing will play about an hour from now, and the moonwalk in a bit less than 8 hours. I've got the window open; this might be pretty interesting. Click over for full details; note that this is just like old-fashioned TV: if you miss it, you've missed it, though I suspect you could watch it at your leisure on the U-tubes.

If you've never seen this coverage, I urge you to watch at least the landing segment (~10 min.) and the first 10-20 minutes of the Moon walk. I hope that with the old time TV display and poor YouTube quality, you get a small sense of how someone 40 years ago might have experienced it.
