Just two #Apollo guys shooting the breeze. Wish there were more of us around to attend these astronaut reunions.
On Monday, October 21, at 6:30 pm at The Apollo Theater in Harlem, New York, NAN will recognize a range of leaders influencing Black culture at the #NANTriumphAwards . Honorees include leaders in civil rights and social justice, the arts, education, business, and sports.

The Apollo 11 mission patch: No American flag. No space hardware. No Astronaut names. In that regard, unique among space emblems. Affirmation that walking on the Moon was an achievement of the human species, to be shared by all.
Our smartphones are 120 million times more powerful than the computers that guided Apollo 11. That has enabled us to progress from moon landings to cat videos.
Take a look at the first Moon image captured by #Chandrayaan2 #VikramLander taken at a height of about 2650 km from Lunar surface on August 21, 2019. Mare Orientale basin and Apollo craters are identified in the picture. #ISRO
HAPPY GOLDEN ANNIVERSARY December 24, 2018. Fifty years ago, Apollo 8 entered Lunar Orbit, carrying the first humans ever to reach the Moon: Frank Borman, Jim Lovell, Bill Anders. Bearing witness to Earthrise, they read in turn, the first ten verses of Genesis from the KJV Bible.
We're saddened by the passing of Chris Kraft, our first flight director. He was a space legend who created the concept of Mission Control during the early human spaceflight program and made it an integral part of the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo missions. He was 95.
We're saddened by the loss of astronaut John Young, who was 87. Young flew twice to the Moon, walked on its surface & flew the first Space Shuttle mission. He went to space six times in the Gemini, Apollo & Space Shuttle programs.
Aiming for first flight of Falcon Heavy on Feb 6 from Apollo launchpad 39A at Cape Kennedy. Easy viewing from the public causeway.
