    I love that Icelandic has a word for the time of night after 3am & before morning: Ótta
    Whilst the word is beautiful the hour is ungodly.

    Forty-five years ago today, two human beings first set foot on the moon. On July 20, 1969, the lunar module of Apollo 11 touched down in the Sea of Tranquility, and forever changed how we view our place in the universe. When I think about the fact that four and a half decades ago, at the very moment I am writing this, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin were walking on the freakin’ moon, I am humbled and inspired.

    I’ve combined some of my favorite photos from Apollo 11 with some of the actual words spoken by Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins.

    If you’d like to relive the historic mission moment by moment, word by word, and photo by photo, head over to SpaceLog

    "We die to each other daily.
    What we know of other people
    Is only our memory of the moments
    During which we knew them. And they have changed since then.
    To pretend that they and we are the same
    Is a useful and convenient social convention
    Which must sometimes broken. We must also remember
    That at every meeting we are meeting a stranger."

    Head Automatica / Beating Hearts Baby

    Baby is this love for real?
    Let me in your arms to feel
    The beating of your heart, baby
    The beating of your heart, baby.

    Every time I hear this song, it stuck in my head for weeks
