This one kinda slipped by me earlier this week, but it's a biggie. Monday marked the 40th anniversary of our lunar landing. Yup, 40 years since Armstrong and Aldrich took that famed stroll. And, with new technology available, some of the photos the 2 astronauts took (which had been previously archived and hidden from public view) are now available for our enjoyment.
This one got me all verklempt:
Maybe it's the phrasing on the plaque: "Here men from the planet earth first set foot upon the moon July 1969, A.D." - gives me chills. Pretty big deal. But then, I'm one who still gets teary-eyed when I see the Space Shuttle lift off.
Kinda makes me wanta do a bunch of research and write a novel with an astronaut as the hero... or heroine?
Hmm. Those little wheels-n-cogs are spinning now.
