Today is a historic day as a crewed spaceflight hopefully will take place from American soil. NASA along with Space X are partnering to launch The Dragon spacecraft to the International Space Station on a Falcon 9 rocket.
My dad was a huge space nerd. He loved stuff like this. I am watching this in memory of him and to share this special event with him in spirit. Let’s hope that the weather cooperates and these Astronauts will be with the crew of the Space Station today.
History is being made as two women are doing a space walk outside the International Space Station today. What an opportunity to show what an all woman team can do.
Another giant leap for woman kind.
Fifty years ago Neil Armstrong became the first human to step foot on the moon as Apollo 11 landed safely on its surface. Buzz Aldrin joined Armstrong on the moon while Michael Collins manned the command module that would return them to Earth. This remains the greatest technological event in human history. This event fulfilled the promise of President John F. Kennedy who said earlier in the decade this should happen. Today we remember this event that changed us all.
Today is the 50th Anniversary of the liftoff of Apollo 11 that carried Neil Armstrong, Michael Collins and Buzz Aldrin to the Moon. This remains one of the greatest fetes of mankind. To think that your cellphone has more computing power than that rocket is pretty astounding. Those men had courage to do what they did. It’s amazing to think about what went into this mission.
I wasn’t born quite yet but to me being born during the year of the voyage to the moon was pretty special. I hope there will be another trip someday. It’s been too long.
America was at its finest when we aimed for the stars in a previous generation. We were inspired to use our brains to achieve a goal of going to the Moon. Rockets were used for peaceful purposes of exploration. Science and a little bit of faith got us past Earth’s atmosphere into a whole new world where we would sail upon celestial seas.
