There And Back

It’s coming up on the 4oth Anniversary of the first human to walk on the moon. It must have been literally amazing to see that happen on television. Today, we take space travel as a sort of ho-hum event, unless there’s a tragedy. Otherwise, it’s just another day at the office. Nonetheless, space exploration remains a dangerous, and at the same time, adventurous business that attracts some of the greatest minds on planet earth. I salute these brave and intelligent souls. They have more guts and brains than me. It’s one thing to get there; something else entirely to get back.

If you’re interested in checking out the restored tapes of the first moonshot, go to: http://www.nasa.gov/home/index.html. They have a great website at NASA, full of info, photos, and videos. Check it out. You won’t be disappointed.

  1. There are also many truly historical items up for auction at this site–things like the manual for the first moon landing, models of the space modules and engines, and medallions and patches that have been to the moon and back!
