Men on the Moon

As a young boy in the late '60s we lived in Cocoa Beach, FL. I was lucky enough to see most of the Apollo rockets go off (and a good many of the early shuttle missions as well, later on). I clearly remember when the Apollo 11 mission landed on the moon, going out and looking up at the moon and thinking "there are people up there right now". What kid wouldn't be inspired by something like that?
