The Asteroid Project

My name is Damian Marley, and I am not the son of Bob, and Bob's not me uncle. I am, however, a teacher-hubby-dad-nerdbomber type person from Melbourne, Australia. Astronomy, space, science, books, filmmaking, education and music are some of the things I bang on about. Most stuff I post is original. And you?

December 4th 2013: I put ‘Freak Out!’ in my car CD player.
July 24th 2014: The last track of ‘Civilization Phaze III’ ended.
Seven months of Zappa in my car, in chronological order. (Posthumously released albums were also played, peppered in amongst all the other albums in conceptual continuity).
Some albums were played twice, some three times, some in bits and pieces.
If there is one word I have to describe Frank’s music, it is joyful.
"The present-day composer refuses to die!"

Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins met with President President Barack Obama today to commemorate the 45th anniversary since mankind first set foot on the moon. Sadly, this is the first Apollo 11 celebration at the White House without the mission’s commander, Neil Armstrong, who died at the age of 82 in 2012. Armstrong’s widow, Carol, attended the meeting in his stead, reports NBC’s Alan Boyle.

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.
