Day: July 20, 2015

The day it got real…

Forty-six years ago, a lot of us who were around at the time probably witnessed the first tentative baby steps of that creature known as man. On this day, all those years ago, science fiction became science fact, as Apollo 11 landed on the moon; marking the first time we stepped upon a celestial body other than our own. It was watched by an estimated 500-600 million people world wide – and held the record for most viewers, until the wedding of Charles and Diane. I wish the provincialism of that fact didn’t depress me as much as it does… “That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind” Niel Armstrong   Image found here.   Advertisements
