Just saw this... RIP. I'm not sure that we'll ever recover the grand ambitions of that generation.

Amazing man. Changed the world with his team. RIP
How exaclty has the world changed? Whether man went to the moon or not is neither here nor there - the space race was a technological "war" between the two super powers of the time the USSR and the USA. The modern day bean counters have put an end to anything like that ever happening.

anyways, it was all staged in a hollywood studio.:whistle:

but back on topic, yes., they were incredibly brave to sit on several hundred (or was it thousand) tons of high explosive then literally go where no man had been before not knowing if they would ever return.:eek:

And as Alan Shepherd said, it was a sobering thought that each of the parts was made by the lowest bidder.

I'm gutted. One of my heroes. One of the best stick and rudder men that ever flew, balls of steel, yet incredibly quiet and humble. One of the greatest figures of modern history and I mourn his passing.
