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.
