I expected to spend only a few hours here but ended up spending the entire day. To start, the complex had a kennel for Sigh Me. She wasn't happy about it but the 85 degree day would have been too much for her in the RV.I would like to be able to name all the buildings and rockets that I took pictures of but I don't remember. The one above is part of the assembly area.
This is an excerpt from Wikipedia:
Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed their Lunar Module(LM) on the Moon on July 20, 1969 and walked on its surface while Michael Collins remained in lunar orbit in the command spacecraft, and all three landed safely on Earth on July 24. Five subsequent Apollo missions also landed astronauts on the Moon, the last in December 1972. In these six spaceflights, 12 men walked on the Moon. These are the only times humans have landed on another celestial body.
What an era to be born in! Did Columbus feel the same pride? What will bring the same feelings in the future? And how long from now?
It is wonderful and says it all.
