Ditto but my age was 5 months.Actually it was all arranged byJFK as he knew that day, was one of those days that should be celebrated for ever by mankind.
Thankfully he did not live to see how this critical event was overshadowed by the celebrations.
So while a very grateful Exfarmer still thanks him to this day , for the firework show, the rest of the world has forgotten, except for my facebook friends of course, and even a couple of members of my family, that this was all arranged to alert the world, I had come of age

Six of the Apollo missions landed 12 astronauts on the moon. The original programme of landings were undertaken at huge expense & it was felt that there was little else to be achieved by further manned flights. The modern approach is to use autonomous vehicles for space exploration as this represents a far lower risk & costs are significantly lower due to not needing to provide life support for a bunch of meatbags.And yet they went all that way ???
Odd no ones ever been back
