    The photo of the earth rising was the main point I think. It's nothing
    unusual today but was a big deal to see the first time. I was 5 years
    old & vaguely remember huddling around the TV watching Apollo missions.

    That link is to a web page. It contains an article on the event and
    a leads with the image. Now that I take another look at the page and
    scroll down lower than I saw before, I see a video offered. I did not see
    that before, and an add-on to my browser blocked it, so I didn't see any
    excessive use of bandwidth. Read: I did not know there was a video on
    that page. And I linked to the page: what you choose to download once
    there is up to you.
    I am.
