We know where we were on July 20, 1969. Daza was wearing nappies (stylish ones of course) in Christchurch, New Zealand. Enid was comfy and warm in her mother's womb, located somewhere on the outskirts of London. Meanwhile, Neil Armstrong took one small step for man and one giant leap for mankind. While some claim otherwise (see The Great Moon Hoax, the landing of Apollo 11 on our friendly neighbour the moon was a monumental landmark in human history.

Celebrate the dawning of the Space Age with one of these glass tumblers

Celebrate the ingenuity and audacity of NASA's contribution to the space race, with these 2 racy souvenir tumblers. One side of the glasses are decorated with the scenes that astounded our mothers and fathers - the thrusting of Saturn 5, the Eagle that landed, Neil's first step and the erection of the US flag. The other features silhouettes of astronauts Commander Neil Alden Armstrong, Command Module Pilot Michael Collins and Lunar Module Pilot Edwin Eugene 'Buzz' Aldrin, Jr. There are gold printed signatures (see photo) from each of these brave men, and for added pleasure, the signature of notorious US president Richard Nixon.
