History Highlights

Today in 1969, was an exciting day for me

July 19, 1969  Apollo 11, with Neil Armstrong, Edwin "Buzz" Aldrin and Michael Collins on board, went into orbit around the moon.Then on July 20, 1969, astronaut Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.




What a moment! In 2 months, I would be a high school senior. It wouldn’t be much longer and the world would be at my door step. Reaching the moon gave me encouragement for my future.


Even Snoopy joined in the celebration declaring "The moon is made of American cheese!" 


After lifetime of reading science fiction, I was ready for a brave, new world. It was now waiting for me. It was a world full of possibilities.
