50th Anniversary of Apollo 13!

This Saturday, July 20th, marks the 50th anniversary of Apollo 15, the US mission that put man on the moon. If you want some listening material to complete your personal observation, here are my recommendations:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JQsbqpazOAk from Rusalka, Act I: "Song to the Moon" Sarah Brightman
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_r43g35TjKk&list=PL1ohIZW4_dHt_2WNT7IVIjY0bCLybU5ro also Rusalka with beautiful video (be sure to read the "more") https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=anQlB3-PQZ4 also Sarah Brightman, La Luna by SelfFlush
lyrics: "Sous les nuages de la nuit
je marche vers la clairière.
D'un éclat argenté je la vois,
la lune.
Elle porte les voiles de l'éternité,
son auréole embrasse les étoiles, ma lune.
[English translation:]
Under the clouds of the night
I walk towards the clearing
I a silvery burst, I see it
The moon
It wears the veils of
Its halo embrace
the stars, my moon"
Interesting anthology of Space Oddity - after being tossed about by different record companies (nobody could quite decide whether it was a slam against the US or England), it was finally released in timing with Apollo 13. It was inspired by the movie 2001:A Space Odyssey (Odyssey..Oddity...get it?) which incorporated "Also Spracht Zarathustra".
