Nixon's Other Speech

Today is the 40th anniversary of the Apollo XI moon landing.

H/T to Radley Balko over at The Agitator for linking to an article about President Nixon's alternate speech. It was to be used in the event that the unthinkable happened and Aldrin and Armstrong either died on the descent or were unable to make the ascent from the moon.

I'm sincerely glad that that speech went into the archive, and the world was able to rejoice at the success of Apollo XI.
