Where Were You When Neil Armstrong Landed on the Moon?

Where were you when he took those historic first steps? And what's the future for space exploration?

Man’s first steps on the moon. If you were alive then, you remember that riveting moment.

It was a patriotic moment for sure. We had beaten the Soviets first to the moon.

Our flag firmly planted in the moon’s sandy soil.

But it also represented the best of the human race. Having explored our planet, we weren’t satisfied in knowing what we knew. Not when there was a whole, big universe out there.

That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.

At 82 years old, Neil Armstrong has died. According to the New York Times, he died following some cardiovascular procedures. He lived in Cincinnati. 

Has the dream of space exploration died with it? President Obama is proposing a NASA budget 20 percent smaller for 2013. NASA, however, still has its sights on Mars.

Tell us in the comments your memories of the Apollo 11 astronaut’s historic landing. And where should we go in the future?

It was a day that was pivotal in the formation of who I am. I was celebrating my 3rd birthday and I remember clearly my mother sitting me down in front of the TV and telling me to watch carefully because this would be a day I would want to remember for the rest of my life. It was the best birthday present a little girl could ever ask for. I am literally a moon child. I have felt honored and very proud that this amazing leap for mankind happened on the day of my birth and I will always watch with wonder the continued advances our space program makes toward reaching beyond what we know to explore the new and undiscovered. Thank you Neil for being one of the many pioneers exploring this new frontier!

This day means more than my small comment can express. One of my blog posts may give more clarity: http://mydevotionaloutlet.blogspot.com/2012/03/layers-revealed.html. Yes, these pioneers have walked on the moon (and beyond) and on my heart...in a good way! :-)
