Remembering Neil Armstrong - The Apollo 11 Launch in HD

With the sad loss of Neil Armstrong last week - the first man to walk on the Moon - I thought I'd share this wonderful, often forgotten, video of the Apollo 11 launch way back in 1969. This amazing super slow motion high definition video was shot using the Camera E-8 on the launch umbilical tower at an astonishing 500 frames per second. The 30 second footage is stretched to 8 minutes in this video with each of the stages explained expertly by the narrator. RIP Neil Armstrong.
