Celebrate 45 Years Since Man’s First Steps On Moon

Photo by NASA/Newsmakers-Getty Images I can remember exactly where I was the moment Buzz Aldrin stepped on the moon. Now this Sunday we celebrate 45 years since that amazing feat. Now is the time to get moon struck. “Forty-five years ago Sunday, Apollo 11′s Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to set foot on another world. Armstrong’s “one small step … one giant leap” on the dusty lunar surface July 20, 1969, still stirs hearts.You can join the celebration, without needing to travel to the launch site at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center, where NASA will honor Armstrong on Monday with a renaming ceremony of the historic Operations and Checkout Building. Both Aldrin and Michael Collins, the Apollo 11 command module pilot who orbited the moon, will be there.” At the very least, walk out and wink at the moon this weekend. “For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request,” the Armstrong family said in a statement after his death in 2012. “Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.” http://nr.news-republic.com/Web/ArticleWeb.aspx?regionid=1&articleid=26098141&m=d
