39th anniversary of Man landing on Moon
Yep, it was 39 years ago today that a human first set foot on the Moon, a culmination of decades of research and the highest levels of technology. I was eight years old that day, and our elementary school teachers had us all sit on the floor of the lobby to watch events unfold on big televisions perched on top of stands. The Space Age was an awesome time to grow up, and every kid wanted to be an astronaut.
What are your memories of that momentous day?
