CAPE CANAVERAL, Florida – The Apollo 11 mission to the moon was launched on July 16th, 1969 with the lunar landing taking place on July 20th of the same year.  In front of a sea of reporters to honor and celebrate the 50th anniversary of the event, Buzz Aldrin recalled what it was like.  “It was amazing,” said the famed American astronaut, “We landed next to the West Crater, which is 300 feet in diameter, and being a huge sportscar racing fan, all I could think about was how much the moon surface reminded me of Sebring.”

When a reporter from the BBC asked what Sebring was, Aldrin punched him in the lip and told him to go back to France.
