40 years ago Monday, Ohioan Neil Armstrong became the first man to set foot on the moon. Apollo 11 was the culmination of a nearly decade-long dream set in motion by President John F. Kennedy who challenged the nation in 1961 to land a man on the moon before the decade was out. The space race led to a quantum leap in technology that has enabled humans to explore the solar system and better understand the natural forces that affect Earth. Monday, on The Sound of Ideas we remember the historic first moon landing. Join us with your memories at 9:00 a.m. on 90.3.
