For those of us who weren't alive at the time, it's really impossible to capture the feeling that permeated our culture at that time. We grew up in a world in which people landing on the moon was part of our history, after all. I can only imagine the awe everyone must have felt as they watched live as the first people stepped onto the lunar surface.
