This is one of the coolest stories I’ve heard in a long time. The United States will send 4 astronauts to the moon in 2018!
To the moon!
I’m a fan of NASA and love to see the U.S back in the business of space exploration. I love shuttle missions. I love “The Right Stuff”. I love “From the Earth to the Moon”. I remember putting on a plastic race car helmet and jumping on the propane gas tank in our front yard back during the last manned trip to the moon.
That was 1972 and my friend Lee Waid and I would climb on that gas tank and pretend we were on our way. Or maybe on our way back, I don’t remember.
This new mission will be on a new rocket that the NASA chief says will be “very Apollo-like, with updated technology. Think of it as Apollo on steroids.”
