Flight controller gives thoughts on Apollo 11

Apollo 11 T+50

Ed Fendell watched the first lunar landing (July 20, 1969) from his console in the Mission Operations Control Room in Houston.

The full impact of that moment came later for him and many others who worked during the Apollo 11 mission.

Fendell reflects on the reaction to this historic event that is considered one of the greatest technological achievements of the 20th century.
