The perpetuation of our species is predicated on
how well we learn to live and work in space.
I worked at NASA during the last two Apollo
missions. I still get goose bumps from that time.
I'm a GED graduate and got there buy a lucky fluke.
If you can imagine, like every boy of that time I wanted
to be an astronaut. I watched Allen Shepard lift off
on TV and then ran outside to see the launch vehicle rise
over the roof of our family home. I ended up there through luck
and found my self in the mist of the greatest achievement
in the history of mankind It's funny, the highlight
in my life will probably go down to the time when I was 21
years old.
Newt through his speech yesterday rekindled an American
standard that has been lost yet not forgotten. You gettem Newt!
