"Techniques of Lunar Landing" Lecture by Armstrong

I was glued to the TV on July 20, 1969, in the living room of my house the summer between graduation and my first college semester as a midshipman at USC. Soon after the Apollo 11 mission, Armstrong gave a lecture at Bovard Auditorium on the USC campus called “Techniques of Lunar Landing,” which I attended. He was finishing up his Master’s in Aerospace Engineering, and the lecture was in partial fulfillment of that course of study. I reckon he knew what he was talking about. I still have a copy of the notes he passed out. I imagine in some newspaper an editorial cartoon will depict a young man wearing a skewed baseball cap, ear-buds, and baggy shorts saying, “Neil who??”
