The United States Space Program has always held a special place in my heart. My whole childhood was wrapped up in it , and I am sure for most of you the same is true. Everyone I new , myself included wanted to be an astronaut!
I remember 40 years ago today walking with my best friend Chris up and down and around the block looking for the Good Humor Ice Cream man and hearing the sounds of NASA everywhere since everyone was inside glued to their TV screens watching the first lunar landing. It was a hot sunny July day in Dearborn , Michigan. I also remember hearing Neil Armstrong's infamous "Tranquility base here, the eagle has landed." It is something I will never forget and I was delighted to see all the members of the Apollo 11 team are still alive and well. Below I have posted my favorite picture which you most likely have seen , and then and now pictures of the brave Apollo 11 team. It was 40 years ago today...time flies!!
