7/13/14 Houston, The Eagle Has Landed
At 4:18 p.m. on July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong’s voice crackled from the speakers at NASA’s Mission Control in Houston. He said simply, “the Eagle has landed.”

With those words, the dream President John F. Kennedy’s voiced in 1961–putting humans on the Moon by the end of the decade–had at last come true.

“As the only reporter to have covered all 166 American astronaut flights and moon landings Jay knows these events intimately. Neil Armstrong himself said, “Barbree is history’s most experienced space journalist. He is exceptionally well qualified to recall and write the events and emotions of our time.” Through his friendship with Neil and his dedicated research, Barbree brings us the most accurate account of his friend’s life of flight, the book he planned for twenty years.” Neil Armstrong: A Life of Flight” Join host Bob Gould and his guest, author and NBC News Space Correspondent, Jay Barbree.
