And 'all day from one side we hear news about the fact that today, 20 July 2009, use the 40 years of landing on the moon.

But are we really safe? No, I do not mean the usual pizza served up in the various plots which deny the fact that it was possible to get off the Moon "about" 40 years ago, but offer a small them.

From Wikipedia that

Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the Moon as the commander of the American mission Apollo 11 by first setting foot on the Moon at 02:56 UTC on July 21, 1969

    Yes, but not 40 years from touchdown of a spacecraft on the moon thing that had happened in other previous missions. The 40 are from landing on the moon then, the key moment is when they are not parties when roach are or when they returned but when he was rested the first foot on the Moon
