I kind of have two moons in my head, I guess, whereas most people just have one moon. I look at the moon just like everybody else who's never been there, and you know, there it is, and I've always thought it was interesting. Whether it's full or a sliver, or what have you. But every once in a while, I do think of a second moon, you know, the one that I recall from up close. And yeah, it is kind of hard to believe that I was actually up there.

I was just a lad of 19 when we accomplished one of the greatest feats of all time - putting a man on another body in space. This is the story of that magnificent accomplishment and the eight subsequent trips to the moon told by those who made the trips. These men are the only ones who have been to the moon, as we have made no trips back since the Apollo program.
I loved Tom Wolf's story, The Right Stuff about these astronauts, but to see them tell their own story was awesome. These are the guys who really ventured where no man has gone before.
What was amazing to them and to me is the fact that the whole world was part of our ventures and we were, for a brief time, one world united. We sure blew that.
