By the way, he defended his thesis wearing the Speedy Moonwatch that I gave him two years ago……Successfully. He now has masters in computer engineering. Thesis was on supercomputing.

El Correo de Zamora remembering the first Moon Landing

Great news in the past as in the present ! Y lo mejor: que la hubiese publicado “El Correo de Zamora” 😀

Hello Edgatk! Thank you for your kind comments. This is the reproduction of the 1969 edition of El Correo de Zamora giving the great news. Guess these news were in the first page...

... of every newspaper around the World. Here the front page of "Clarin" one of our most popular newspapers in my Country as well of some other papers from USA and UK as well. Cheers! Abel ...

Many thanks to you, Abel ! I found it funny because Zamora is a very small town from Castilla y León Region, which means that the newspaper is a very very local one. (By the way, Zamora is a beautiful city and is therefore worth to visit.)

My big pleasure to share Edgatk. Yes, I know. As a matter of fact my wife has some family in Zamora and she visited the town a few years ago. Regrettably I couldn´t accompany her on that trip.

Hopefuly she will visit again some day and I will make company to her. She was fascinated with the place and region. Abrazos! Abel

Hola estimado Johnny! Muchas gracias por tus gentiles comentarios. And thanks a lot for sharing your picture. I remember viewing these historical watches myself some years ago...

... when visiting the Museum. Probably the biggest grail for a Speedmaster lover and collector. Absolutely out of reach of course! Nice to know they are well preserved in the Museum!! Un muy cordial saludo, Abel

Watched it on a black and white TV and ran out back to see if I could see it from the back yard as clearly as I could on TV!! Landed at 20:16 GMT. My son defended his masters thesis today. He works for a NASA lab and hopes to work on the next Lunar Lander...

I'm old enough to remember...
