    I know right. I researched this a little. NASA claims we wouldn’t have camera phones, dustbusters, computer mouse, home insulation or laptop computers without them. Please...

    Remember that to this day, was sitting at house at IOP watching on black and white tv. Too young at that time to understand the magnitude of it and how special it was

    Most of us at that time had a toy Apollo 11 rocket we played with .


    One of my favorite movies is Apollo 13, amazing to me to watch how they handled the situation with what we consider primitive methods but at the time they were state of the art. Neat to see the guys pull out slide rules to check calculations

    Other favorite movie of mine is The Right Stuff

    True American Hero’s

    I find it hard to believe that I am sitting st Edisto Beach and cant get cell service to call home, but they could talk to people on the moon 50 years ago by radio.

    I’m not saying it was a hoax, but it sure wouldn’t surprise me if it was. I don’t trust anything anyone in our government says.
    When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh-
