Could it get any more perfect than this? What else could I possibly post about?
I was not around during the Apollo 11 moon landing, so I cannot and will not write up any nostalgic post. In fact, I am not going to write at all. I’ll just post this video and go directly into the Cosmic Perspective.
The Cosmic Perspective
40 years ago today, a man set foot on that ephemeral orb people have gazed upon from the beginning of consciousness. What an occasion. It was truly a landmark event on the time line of America … science … and the world. Truly, it was, “One small step for a man; one giant step for mankind.” I could not say it any better. So, I won’t. Here, I will honor the men who took this cosmic adventure, fraught with danger: Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins. Thank you for your courage and fortitude.
