Goodnight Moon: A Final Tribute to Apollo 11

To Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins for your service and bravery 40 years ago, we thank you.

To all the men and women of NASA and related industries who's brilliance and diligence helped put humans on the moon, we thank you.

To all the people of the world who support space exploration and dream (as we do) of going boldly where no man has gone before...we thank you.

To all the television networks and Internet websites who remembered with their coverage this historic day, the Flaming Nose says a very heart felt thank you. Especially to the History Channel which featured the original CBS telecast of the Apollo landing narrated by the unforgettable news anchor Walter Cronkite, who just passed away this week.

Forty years ago people all over the earth put their differences on pause, to watch humans take the first step towards the stars. May it happen again in my life time.

Next stop...Mars. (Imagine how great it will look on HDTV!)

I think television did this anniversary proud. Clearly space travel is still top of mind for so many, and is the kind of endeavour that will bring people together. For that reason alone, it is worth pursuing.

To Mars!!
