Apollo 11 and Mother Country
Posted in Uncategorized
My daughter Neve and I saw the incredible IMAX movie Apollo 11 last week. And the emotional climax of this very emotional movie is the playing of this song by John Stewart, the folksinger and alum of my alma mater Pomona College.
Despite already being a John Stewart fan (check out the amazing album “Bombs Away Dream Babies”), I had only discovered this song earlier this year. And it made my day to hear it in the movie.
The kicker is that the Apollo 11 astronauts actually did play a tape of this song on their return journey to earth.
