I’m sure everyone gets it is Apollo 8!

I had no idea at all what you were talking about.

Something to do with space then?

The Apollo mission equivalent of the YACF mid-Essex massive on a winter audax:  They went all the way to lunar orbit, but instead of finishing the job they just took a couple of photos and went for a pint without validating their brevet cards.  In the resulting Awoowoo article they blamed Grumann for not pumping up the tyres on the lunar module in time for the launch.
Careful, Kim. Your sarcasm's showing...

You will lose several hours
I guess the image count on the Apollo 13 mission drops to less than half of all the others
because they had more pressing things to attend to....

I'm just back from my local IMAX cinema. It's a good job that nobody posted any spoilers...

I can't remember the last film that I saw where the entire audience sat in silence until the end of the credits.

And as a fitting mark of respect, the 50th anniversary of the lauch of Apollo 11 has been marked by a partial lunar eclipse which looked quite good from where I stood with binoculars looking at it :thumbsup:

Watching a catch-up of the C4 Moon Landing Live programme.

It’s weird because

It is largely in colour.
Well over half the people you see it it are dead
You know the ending.

*Yeah. There was a lying shit president at the time, but he wasn’t as bad as the straw hairdo cunt.

I would like to point out the person Buzz punched was very aggressive and would not leave Buzz alone and quite abusive to buzz.

It was video'd and quite funny. IMO.

Where is this on ?

I went to the Odeon in Richmond (SW London, not peoples republic of), I think when I looked it was on in Kingston as well.

Looks like it's on in Wimbledon tomorrow afternoon and Kingston tomorrow afternoon and then 17:50 - neither imax.

For space fans and computer geeks Fran Blance show a logic board from the Apollo Missions a Saturn V Launch Vehicle Digital Computer (LVDC) form her collection.

https://youtu.be/J0ggqY7vnAw

Fran is very cools as well as doing stuff like this she owns a famous guitar pedal company and used to work for Electro Harmonix on their pedal design.
I think you'll find it's a bit more complicated than that.
