This is a short post. Currently cooling my jets in Titusville, about 10 miles from the pad where Endeavour waits for a 5 AM launch window. Latest news from NASA: Fueling still not begun (was scheduled to start at 8:15, but as of 9:30 had not begun due to electrical storms nearby. Rain and lightning visible from here. Not looking good for tomorrow at this point; keeping fingers crossed!
WELCOME TO THE FUTURE, CIRCA 1969
Welcome to the Missions to the Moon book blog. This is a place to re-live the heady days of the Apollo and Soyuz lunar programs- perhaps the crowning achievements of the 20th Century. Many blog entries will include a new downloadable image or artifact from the space age- items rarely seen and not available in print. It's all in the spirit of my newest book, Missions to the Moon- to remember the great adventure of the Golden Age of space exploration, and ponder what wonders await us in space.
