Apollo 11 Mission, 44 years ago.

July 16, 2013

Apollo 11 was launched on July 16, 1969 from Cape Kennedy with the goal of landing man on the Moon; a first in recorded history that we know of.

In about 100 and 2 hours after Neil Armstrong became the first man to step on the Moon.

    I remember watching Armstrong step off the ladder down one of the legs of the lander when I was only 16. I was 16 and visiting the house of a new friend. Her father and siblings and I were gathered together watching it live in their living room.

    When I looked over at my friend’s father after hearing Armstrong’s “One small step” comment, I noticed a tear in her father’s eye. I think I saw two great things that day.
