I thought you might think so!
I don't remember the Soviet event, but my family was glued to the TV for the other. It's weird to talk to people who insist it was all a hoax.
I don´t remember either (wasn´t born for the first, and was it televised? I don´t think television was even an every man´s possession at that time, Swedish broadcasts had only been going for about four years), but all that is so much a part of the world I grew up in - my childhood plan B (if veterinary school wouldn´t have me) for the future was to work at NASA; I gave it up the year I encountered highschool physics...
I was born for the 1st but don't remember it. We did have a TV back then, though, because I remember watching Captain Kangaroo at home in the 1960s lol.
My parents had tv by the time they were expecting me, I was named after a girl my mum had seen on tv, she had a hit song that year, Victoria Kahn. I don´t remember what it was called, but I think it was a cover of a Nat King Cole song. They would "translate" hit songs in those days and record them with local artists.
