…we first walked on the moon.
Looking up, it’s hard to believe we could ever travel so far. Being a physicist, I actually studied the rockets and the science involved at the time (and yes, I really am both a rock star and a rocket scientist, go figure… I must dig rocks of all kinds) and what would be risky now was virtually suicide back then. Imagine travelling all the way to the moon (and back) in something just a little more sophisticated than a metal garbage can. The crew of Apollo 11 were courageous for sure.
I stand in awe.
Also, it makes me wonder when (or if) we’ll be going back.
