When I was a kid, I was a great fan of the U.S. space program. I kept newspaper clippings of all the launches. I vividly recall watching the moon landing on TV from my living room at Kincheloe AFB in Michigan (Ok, I was coming off a night shift, so I missed the actual landing!!)
Today is the 43rd anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s famous stroll. I hope my grandchildren will be able to witness the first Mars landing, by a privately-funded venture, in their lifetime.
Watch the landing in Google Earth.
