One Giant Leap For Mankind: 35 years later

Unfortunately, I was born too late. Too late to be involved in the historic Apollo program. Too late to even remember seeing any of the final missions on TV...

There is a great feature on the Apollo 11 program at:

You can also check out this cool site: Which features digital pictures:

a result of recent work by Johnson Space Center to digitally scan original Apollo film. The process involves removing each original film roll from a double-freezer, allowing it to thaw, then digitally scanning each frame using an Oxberry adapted HR-500 long roll film scanner.

I've been to Kennedy Space Center twice now, and it chokes me up every time I go there.

I still hope to work for NASA some day. I think the project would be a great fit!
