Restored Videos of First Moon Landing

I found this news in the Reuters' most watched videos RSS feed. NASA is restoring all of the videos from the first moon landing on July 20, 1969. All of the videos will be available in September, but you can see a preview now on the NASA website. You can also watch the sample that is embedded below.

Applications for Education
The restored videos of the first moon landing could be good materials to use as part of lesson on the history of space exploration. The videos would also be good to use as part of a lesson on the Cold War and the Space Race.
