Forty years ago yesterday, three of the bravest men who ever lived started a journey no-one else had ever taken. Looking now at the craft in which they traveled, they were even braver than I remember thinking them back in July of 1969.
These were our heroes, and they were more than equal to the job at hand: going to the Moon!
Actually, it apparently got so mundane in the capsule, that 40 years ago today, July 17, 1969, the big news of the day was hearing and seeing Mike Collins discuss what the astronauts had to eat aboard Apollo 11.
What, no Tang?
Those truly were heady days.
