Follow the Apollo 11 landing on Twitter!


This is borderline neat, but my hatred for Twitter is so powerful these days that I can’t be sure. Nature—you know, Nature—is tweeting the Apollo 11 landing. “But Carlos,” you say, “that was 40 years ago, lol!” True, but Nature is tweeting the landing as if it were happening today. The first tweet: #Apollo 11 passes 9-hr flight readiness review: 16 July launch date approved.

The updates seem to be coming fairly frequently, at a couple per day. As of now (late Thursday morning as I write this; no idea when it’ll go up live on the site), there’s four tweets, and they’ve been at it since yesterday.

In fact, yes, harmless and fun. Hopefully there’s more pics on the way, too.
