    I was just 6 so I barely remember it. I do remember the later mission with the moon buggy. A fantastic achievement but we need to go further.

      I was 15 1/2, String.

      My Dad worked as a technical writer ( Chrysler-Huntsville) on the Saturn V.

      A week after the landing, he and thousands of others in Huntsville/Redstone Arsenal were out of work. Mission accomplished.

        My grandfather was about 80, he lived with us and watched the moon landing on TV. As Mom noted at the time, he had grown up in the days of horse and wagon, no indoor plumbing and all the other hardships of old times but he lived long enough to see the moon landing on TV.

          A unifying end to a divisive decade. Can't forget the deaths of White, Grissom and Chaffee in the process. All those brilliant minds, all that technology...and someone forgot that pure oxygen burns real fast.

            Amen, Cris.

            All three astronauts had schools named for them in Huntsville following the 1967 catastrophe.

              Going into space is dangerous. That's why I avoid Twitter.

                    Fantastic that Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins have lived long enough to see the anniversary as well, along with the Mars probes and everything else that advances in science and technology allow us to do these days. But there certainly was a dark side (no pun intended) to it as well which must never be forgotten.

                    Cheers,
                    Adam.

                      One small step for a man, but a giant leap for John Bercow.

                        Didn't Armstrong slightly mess it up, in an oxymoronic kind of way? "One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind".
