On this day in 1933 Wiley Post completed the first solo flight around-the-world. The trip lasted 7 days, 19 hours.
Walter Cronkite died last week. I remember watching him on television, especially during the hostage crisis.
He rarely gave his opinion – and there was no doubt that he was passionate about his work, and aware of the importance of it.
40 years ago today Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walked on the Moon.
I was only three years old on that day, and I don’t remember it. My memories of the Apollo 11 mission are from the books that I have read, the movies and television shows that I have watched, and the people that I have met.
A total of just 12 men have walked on the Moon. It is my hope that within the next 40 years many more will do so.
