Load SPACE

Roamy here.  Today is Yuri’s Night, the 50th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin’s flight.   Not only is it the anniversary of manned spaceflight but also the 30th anniversary of the first Space Shuttle launch.  Space.com is inviting votes on their 50 most iconic photos of human spaceflight.  I picked 15 of my own for the nerd-equivalent (?) of Load HEAT.  There’s some overlap with Space.com – one can hardly argue with the Mercury 7, Apollo 11, and the Apollo 8 Earthrise photos – but I threw in a few that mean a lot to me.

  1. I remember my father waking us up to watch the broadcast from the moon in July ’69. We watched it on TV out of Munich. Until we left for the States that October, Americans walked on water to the Germans. We had seen some testiness that spring, but it came to a screeching halt that July.
