Humans set foot on the Moon for the first time forty years ago today

...and I am wrapped up in the mundane details of everyday life. So I will direct you instead to past posts and posts by other people.

Here is my post from this day last year, which also didn't have much to say:
Another Monkey: Apollo 11 lands on the Moon: July 20, 1969

That post points to a previous post about the meaning behind Tasmin Archer's song "Sleeping Satellite":
Another Monkey: Songs about surprising things: Tasmin Archer, "Sleeping Satellite"

Here is the link to NASA's digitally restored footage of the landing:

Here are some posts from my blogfriends. I'll add more as they appear:

Francesco Marciuliano's online comic Medium Large is brilliant as always, and SFW at least this once:
