Remembering the Apollo mission that landed a man on the moon on July 20, 1969 (50 years and 1 month ago yesterday…sorry, I’m late on this post).
Thought this model (scale 1:48) of the command ship and lunar lander in the NASA store was perfect.
It truly is miraculous that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldin made this journey.
In just 8 days, they made the round trip between the earth and the moon, traveling about 240,000 miles each way.
And they walked on the moon for about 3 hours–I want to try that!
Even until today, the U.S. remains the only country to have actually put men on the moon (total of 12).
“One small step for a man; one giant leap for mankind.”
Now it’s high time that we get ourselves to Mars already and colonize it! 😉
