Assuming you were alive, what are your memories?
Did you care?
Are you a denier?
Did you have any toys or collect any stuff?

Apollo 8 Gave us this:
Total cost? 12.53 a year per person. That's it.

I was a toddler when Apollo 11 landed on the moon. I don't remember too much other than my parents excitedly watching the live coverage and trying to explain to me the significance of that historic event. As I got older, the whole idea of men flying into space became very fascinating to me and like many kids of the time I had to be astronaut when I grew up. I eagerly watched any time a blast-off was shown on TV, especially when Skylab came along a few years later. I also collected many toy rockets and model kits but unfortunately they are long gone. Obviously I didn't become an astronaut but it sure was fun seeing history being made as it happened!

My strongest memory of Apollo 8 is I was kid sick with a stomach illness. Watched it between trips to the bathroom. Needless to say Apollo 11 is a more pleasant memory. The biggest takeaway as a kid was space flights were on every VHF channel. For a couple days it dominated the air waves. The same was true of political conventions. I did go as an astronaut one year for Halloween (store bought costume). Remember when the 3 astronauts were killed in a fire during training. Finally, not that long after the moon landing, the what's next for NASA questions started. For 10 ten years, everything had been about landing on the moon. One more, the summer of 69 would gives us the Manson murders just a short time later.

July 20, 1969

"Houston, Tranquility base here. The Eagle has landed."

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin become the first humans to land on the moon. History is made.

"That's one small step for man. One giant leap for mankind."

Armstrong becomes the first human to walk on another planet. History is done.

Only 12 people have walked on the moon:

Neil Armstrong
Buzz Aldrin
Pete Conrad
Alan Bean
Alan Shepard
Edgar Mitchell
David Scott
James Irwin
John Young
Charles Duke
Gene Cernan
Harrison Schmitt

Of the original 12, only 4 are still alive: Aldrin, Scott, Duke and Schmitt

Honorable Mention:

Gene Shoemaker, geologist and astronomer (1928-1997)

The only person buried on the moon. Some of his ashes were carried on the Lunar Prospector spacecraft
which crashed into the moon in 1999. Shoemaker is truly the Man In The Moon!

Excerpts from the article:

When the president of the A.V. Roe plant in Malton, Ont. came on the intercom in February 1959 to tell his workers that prime minister John Diefenbaker had just cancelled the Avro Arrow project, there was palpable disappointment among the world-class team of aeronautical engineers who were about to lose their jobs.

That is, until NASA came a knocking.

After watching all the outstanding coverage and footage of Apollo 11 today, I really wish that Orville and Wilbur Wright had lived to see the first manned lunar landing. Even better, imagine if the Wright brothers had actually met Armstrong and Aldrin. Talk about a truly awesome Paradigm shift!

^^^ "1963: Valentina Tereshkova, first woman in space"

Russia put a woman in space in 1963. Wow!

Space program more closely tied to the work of Robert Goddard than the Wright brothers. Simply, it's about rockets. Goddard, like the Wrights, long dead(1945) before the moon landing.
There is a connection between Goddard & Aldrin. Aldrin's dad was a student of Goddard's in college. Aldrin took a miniature autobiography of Goddard on Apollo 11 flight.

A thread like this should mention the so-called:

According to lore, during the space race Soviet Russia secretly launched a few men and women into space and never admitted their existence. All of these cosmonauts either vanished into deep space or burned-up on re-entry. A few recordings of their communications were made, including the last cries for help from a female cosmonaut as she plummeted to her death. Very haunting if true. God only knows just how many have lost their lives in the pursuit of human exploration.

I heard that tape, looks fake to me, the first Astronauts and Cosmonauts were all tough people, were all selected among the tougher , she seemed to be panicked , couldn say anything besides "fire" even though mission control was repeatedly asking for informations in order to choose a course of action or begin the proper procedure , but she wouldn't listen, wouldn't answer just "fire" Fire" , it doesn't fit the image of a selected and highly trained .space pioneer
