For those old enough to remember, who doesn’t recall where we were and what we were doing 50 years ago?

Man was headed to the moon – the age of Aquarius was upon us, and what had seemed only the stuff of fiction, was now becoming reality. Three astronauts were preparing for a four-day trip through space, boldly going where no man had gone before. Yes we’d been to space before when the Apollo 8 mission orbited the moon, and we got our first look at planet earth from a distance with memorable photographs. So the way to the moon had been established, yet it still defied the imagination.
