Liane's speaks with the second man to walk on the moon about the dangerous and harrowing descent of the Eagle lander. Although those of us on earth were unaware, Neil Armstrong and Aldrin had overshot their landing site and almost ran out of fuel before they found a place to touch down. We also hear excerpts from the transmissions between NASA mission control in Houston and the Eagle lander. Those transmissions and complete transcripts are available at: http://www.hq.nasa.gov/alsj/frame.html.
