41 years ago

I saw this:

Sure, I was an infant and have no memory of it...

NJT, I'm a little bit older. I was about to turn 4 years old and remember it well.

I was in high school, then. The guys and I had just bowled a few lines, and walked the mile-and-a-half home, in 100+ degrees (Tempe, Az.)then watched this on TV. Seems like yesterday...Thanks.

I saw it live on TV. Awesome.
Engineering. Daring. Power.
I have had the pleasure of working with some of the men who made it happen, and with some who went.

But it was 41 years later that we finally realized it was all to celebrate the unique contributions of muslims.
Ignorance. Ineptitude. Stupidity.
A country that stupid can now barely get a man into orbit, let alone to the moon. When will the country regress to eloi?
(oh. never mind)

One of the best memories of my life, and I'm still pissed that
I can't go to Luna City and retire there. Not one damn problem with the engineering to make it happen, and if we spent just 10% of the money we have wasted on "helping the poor and the disenfranchised" over the last 41 years on a decent MANNED Space Program, we'd be working on how to Terraform the Mars Colony.
