Exactly 45 years ago today, astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first men to set foot on the moon. And right now, NASA is replaying the full TV broadcast from that fateful day in real-time. Watch it below—it's just as exhilarating today as it must have been 45 years ago.

The footage may be grainy, and the audio may sound like it's coming through a two-way radio, but that doesn't matter. We get to watch the one small step, the hallmark of space exploration's most giant leap. The footage runs until 2AM—it's the perfect reason to stay up late on a work night. [ NASA TV]
