Moon Landing

I think the event which most impressed me as an adult in a positive way, was the first man landing on the moon. I remember standing at the window that night staring at that great white orb so many millions of miles away, and being astonished that a mere mortal would have the audacity, as well as the ability, to venture there - I still feel that way. I would have been terrified - especially to think I might not get back to earth, but would remain out in space until I died - at least that wouldn’t take long.
