If I had started Microsoft & billions of personal funds, I would go to NASA & offer to fund one more moon shot. I think there is still one more fuctional peice of every componant necessary & I want to ride the right seat. I have been saying for years that I would give 5 years of my life for that opportunity. What an adventure!
If I live long enough, perhaps I might have an opportunity yet, if space gets commercial - and cheap enough. I got to see a shuttle launch as well, my company, as a contractor, had some freebie VIP tickets. I was weeping as well - it was an experience I will never forget. Wish I could have been there for a Saturn!
I was in high school during the beginning of the Mercury program, and got quite caught up in the whole thing. IMHO, the space program in the 60’s was America’s finast hour. It makes my heart a little sick that we have no leader, and no such national goal. This country can do anything it sets its mind to, if not fettered as it is now by superstition and fear!
End of soap box. Thanks for the poll, and for enlivening a working Saturday afternoon.
