40 Years After Apollo 11

Moon FootprintIt is hard to believe it has been 40 years since Neil Armstrong first set foot on the moon.  What is next for mankind.? Do we head back to the moon or do we head to Mars?  These are he questions scientist and scholars have been asking and will continue to ask for years to come.  For those curious the last manned trip to the moon was on December 11, 1972.  For those who remember the first landing on July 20, 1969 it is amazing to hear how riveted the world was by this amazing feat.  If you have never had the pleasure of talking to someone who remembers that day, take the time and sit down with someone who does.  It is an amazing experience to see their eyes light up as they tell their story of that day.  For those you who would like to learn what scientist have learned from our visits to the moon you can check out are great interactive video called “The Moon, it’s Composition, and and Origins”.
