Neil Armstrong

“Mystery creates wonder and wonder is the basis of man’s desire to understand.”

Neil-Armstrong-Astrnaut-Florida-March-1966

“I think we’re going to the moon because it’s in the nature of the human being to face challenges. It’s by the nature of his deep inner soul… we’re required to do these things just as salmon swim upstream.”

“I believe every human has a finite number of heartbeats. I don’t intend to waste any of mine.”

“This is one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind.”

I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small.

“For the eyes of the world now look into space to the moon and to the planets beyond, and we have vowed that we shall not see it governed by a hostile flag of conquest, but by a banner of freedom and peace.”

Of all the places I have visited the NASA Kennedy Space Center in Cape Canaveral, Florida is my favorite and Neil Armstrong is the coolest person I have ever posted about on my blog. That night we watched a SpaceX rocket launch and saw the boosters return and land. I have been lucky enough to watch two rocket launches, they were both amazing moments, something everyone should experience.
