Thanks for your contribution, Norm. You guys made the entire world proud.

I am curious, as a man who was on the inside, do you think we will ever explore the universe outside of our own solar system?

Lazlow,

I don't profess to be a expert on this at all. I was a young engineer, right out of college and worked on the program for about five years.

However, I would never say "never". But I suspect that Mars will be first. Norm

Hello, Norm.

Thanks for your reply. Personally I don't think humans will ever leave our solar system. We will go the way of the dinosaur before that happens. Yet I fully support NASA's endeavor to create new technologies.

Have a great day, Norm.:)
