It changed me. I’m human.
I was a 16 year old young man on a vacation with my parents on Lake George, New York state. One of the neighboring campsites had a portable black and white TV and set it up on a picnic table. People gathered around to watch Apollo 11 astronaut Neil Armstrong come down the ladder and say his famous words, “One small step for man, one giant leap for mankind,” before being the first human being to place his foot on an extraterrestrial body, Earth’s Moon. It happened at 02:56 UTC, but for us on vacation in New York State is was 10:56 pm.
Later I joined a religion that didn’t believe in the moon landing. I spent 29 years in that religion before I left. I still believe in the moon landing. It’s sad people try to make historic human achievements into hoaxes.
When man ventured beyond Earth it was a wonderful experience.
Sadly, I do not believe we will ever step foot outside the solar system.
