Magnificent desolation

I've tried over and over to come up with a significant or even clever post about Collins, Armstrong and Aldrin making the first landing on our Moon happen, along with 400,00 NASA employees.

I was overwhelmed then, I'm overwhelmed now.

In honor of their accomplishment all I have is this, the transcript of their mission

How 'bout: NASA-The U.S. and NASA aimed for the stars and hit the moon instead. Fortunately no one was injured. One of the astronauts, believed to be Neil Armstrong, remained in a jovial enough mood to wisecrack, "Houston, Tranquility Base here. The Eagle has landed." He later remarked,"That's one small step for [a] man, one giant leap for mankind." He is then believed to have muttered sotto voce to Buzz Aldrin, "…(unintelligible) …I told those… (unintelligible)…S.O.B.s we needed to turn left 180,000 miles out to head for the stars, dammit."
