HUGE deal, baby. Pretty sure I was in (the old) Yankee Stadium (may have been 2d lunar landing?)- the place went nuts.....

I was with my folks; we were dropping my sister off at camp when the Eagle landed. Later that evening when Armstrong and Aldrin stepped on the moon I remember watching television and thinking what a bfd it was. I grew up, really, with the US space program: I clearly remember when they chose the first seven Mercury astronauts; when Gemini took 2 men into space together and when the got out and floated in space; when they docked with the Agena drone.

I wish we'd send people back to the moon.

There were five moon landings. Or do you mean post-Apollo?

Would be cool. Given financial realities, I think it may happen in the next couple of decades, for many different reasons.

A lot of private interest has gone into algae research. And honestly the studies on reefs... but the trenches of the Pacific are in many places un-touched, un-seen, and teeming with species and life.

Space has always been the ultimate 'plan B', so it makes sense to fund space research more... but.

Holy hell you're old.



While outer space fascinates me to no end, I think the space program needs to be cut back. Same can be said with our Military. There is a lot of stuff here in the US that money could impact today.

I could only imagine how big a deal that was. the first space shuttle was THE big thing when I was still a kid, and thats nothing compared to a bunch of guys doing what was inconceivable maybe 20 years before that.

still I'd rather the space programs send astronauts to mars rather than the moon.
