HOUSTON -- NASA is providing a unique audio "time capsule" in observance of the 40th anniversary of the first human landing on the moon 40 years ago today on July 20, 1969.

NASA is replaying and streaming audio on the Internet from the entire Apollo 11 mission at exactly the same time and date it was broadcast in 1969.

The audio retrospective began at 6:32 a.m. CDT Thursday, July 16, 1969, two hours before the spacecraft launched.

The audio continues through splashdown of the mission at 11:51 a.m. CDT Friday, July 24, and recovery of the crew shortly afterward.

The Web stream features the communications between the astronauts and ground teams, and commentary from Mission Control at NASA's Johnson Space Center in Houston.

To listen to the replay, visit nasa.gov/externalflash/apollo11_radio.
