Weekly output: Nvidia’s Apollo 11 shout-out

I hope you all have been staying cool over this hot weekend.

7/19/2019: Nvidia returns us to the moon in time for Apollo 11’s 50th anniversary, Yahoo Finance

I used this opportunity to write about the graphics-technology firm’s recreation of Apollo 11’s landing to remind readers of how primitive video technology was 50 years ago, when NASA couldn’t get the live video feed from the moon directly to TV screens. Fun fact: This is the second time I’ve covered a pop-culture release featuring Apollo 11 lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin, the first being a review of the CD-ROM version of Buzz Aldrin’s Race Into Space that I wrote for the Post almost 25 years ago.
