“That’s one small step for man; one giant leap for mankind“
Those words still linger in the back of my head to this day… today, July 20th, 2009, marks the 40th anniversary of the man landing on the moon. To all the space exploration haters, you need not apply. If you can’t begin to fathom the butt loads of benefits from the research alone, you won’t ever be a believer…
And to all those lunar landing hoax pushers, again, read my previous post. Obama seems to not want much of space exploration. That’s a mighty shame. But let’s not let that stop us from celebrating the 40th anniversary! Despite all the fears most people have of it, I’d be an astronaut in a heart beat! The space is indeed, in the cliche’ words of Star Trek, the final frontier. 😛

Such nerd talk.
Quite an achievement. Think about this 66 years after the Wright Brothers and less than 10 years after Pres Kennedy launched the space race, we were on the moon.
Not to be a downer, but with the retirement of the shuttle fleet and the delay of the constellation, we probably will have to start begging the Russians and the Chinese if we want to send a man up to space again.
I probably will not see an American in an American built spacecraft touch the surface of the moon again in my lifetime much less see anyone go to Mars….
umm are you sure that quote is right? it sounds a lot like … you 😉
