Apollo 11 – 50 Years later

July 21, 2019
Fifty years ago, I was recovering from staying up late to watch Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin perform their EVA on the Moon. It was amazing to watch on our new 25 inch color television, even if the images coming from the Moon were in black and white. The world changed that day. At least for me. I was very young but very aware of what had happened. Today the world is celebrating that incredible achievement with parties, meetings, and public displays like we have never seen for space before. It is refreshing to see calls for space exploration and the development of new Lunar plans and the first stepping stones placed for us to go to Mars. In a small way, Mini-Cubes hopes to be a part of the next giant leap for humankind.
