On July 16, 1969, the first spacecraft to take humans to the moon launched from Launch Pad 39A at the Kennedy Space Center. Commander Neil Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins, and Lunar Module Pilot 'Buzz' Aldrin made history but camera E-8, pointing at the launch pad, made historical video of the event. This film was transferred from the original, 500fps, 16mm film by Spacecraft Films and artfully narrated by Mark Gray.

And, as an extra bonus, here's a quick video showing the 'reboot' of European airspace after the eruption of Eyjafjallajokull.
