Wish I'd seen you go. But I understand that your are a complicated beast and had to launch on your own schedule. I just wish I'd been able to share the moment. Please write often from your voyage into LEO, and let me know when you're on your way back. And hey, if you happen to be in the 'hood (aka Edwards), let me know and I'll drop by to day "hi."
After all, we only have seven more chances to tango. And that's sad.
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.
