FEMALE SPEAKER: I was there. I got to go to the Apollo 11 launch. My uncle was a NASA engineer, and I actually went to several of the launches, the Gemini, Apollo 9, Apollo 11, Apollo 13 and 15, I believe. [Apollo] 11 was amazing. I got to watch it from the Vehicle Assembly Building on the Cape Kennedy base, and leaving, it took us four hours to go five miles because of the traffic, got home, watched the landing on television. I was sitting with my family watching the landing, and we couldn't understand what Neil Armstrong said. So we had to wait until it was repeated by the newscasters, and it was just an amazing experience knowing that I had been there and watched it.
