I remember July 1969 – when Neil Armstrong stepped out on to the moon. I was so full of awe that I couldn’t really understand or appreciate what had happened. It was almost unbelievable.
Since then we’ve kind of taken technology for granted, I suspect that our children might see space exploration in the same way as I thought about Captain Cooks voyages. I wonder what there is to amaze children today?
I found it hard to believe that the Space Shuttles have been working for 30 years and have now been retired. Space shuttle Atlantis lifted off July 8 on the final flight of the shuttle program, I’m stunned every time I think of this.
Well done to the Apollo program, well done to the shuttle program and well done the USA. Thank you.
Have a look at this short video, tell people, inspire children. This was a key milestone in the history of humanity and I was around.
PS If you have a decent sound system then crank it up for the first minute – the rumble is just great.
