July 20, 1969: One Giant Leap For Mankind | NASA

July 1969. It’s a little over eight years since the flights of Gagarin and Shepard, followed quickly by President Kennedy’s challenge to put a man on the moon before the decade is out.

It’s 47 years ago since man landed on the moon. It was a dream that became reality. It took smart, dedicated, courageous people to make this happen. These brave souls are heroes in my mind. I am glad they did this so our future in space would be realized for generations.

  1. We were one nation, and those brave souls were heroes. They were not afraid to take calculated risks. They had to think on their feet. Did you know the astronauts who landed on the moon had one commonality? They were all Eagle Scouts, and I believe the only group who can claim that distinction. Thank you for a great post and a reminder of something terrific forty-seven years ago. -Jennie-
