We go in the pre-dawn darkness on July 16, 1969 to the Apollo 11 News Center to catch a press bus to see the Apollo 11 astronauts leave for the Moon. The bus takes us near the Manned Spaceflight Operations Building (MSOB), later known at the Operations and
(O&C). There is a mad rush from the bus to stake out front row positions
behind a rope. Marv and I run to the front and are able to get a second or
third row spot. We stand there crushed in a crowd of journalists from 5:30 a.m.
until 6:10 a.m. when Deke Slayton comes out for a television interview. Then at
6:25 a.m. we see a man in a white space suit at the door of the MSOB—Neil
Armstrong. Checkout Building
