  1. I had just turned 11 yrs old and was in summer school watching non-stop the whole preparation, commentary, countdown, and launch. Everyone I knew were completely into the achievements of a manned space program to put men on the moon. A few days later was an even bigger event.

  2. July 16, 1969 was the absolute tippy-top high point of my young life. Then it just got better and better and better.

  3. We were living in Germany near Stuttgart when the landing took place. My father got me and my brothers up to watch. Next day, among Germans, we could do no wrong. That was the high point for the US in Europe.
