  • I found the press conference with the Apollo 11 astronauts following their return to the moon to a fascinating experience. For the first time in human history, three men who flew to the moon had the opportunity to speak directly with the press and the American people. With Armstrong and Aldrin giving their accounts of the landing and moonwalk, the atmosphere in the room was both electrifying and humbling. Two human beings who were the first to step foot on another world – an amazing sense of perspective and awe 44 years hence!

    Sorry for the errors.
