Out of the Cradle

There are so many inspiring images to choose from. This image of Buzz Aldrin's footprint on the moon represents what is probably the most inspiring moment of my life. The lunar landing. With one small step, a giant leap for mankind. What a really profound step that was.

Mankind's first step onto another world, out of the cradle so to speak, was a turning point for our species and the beginning of my fascination with all things NASA and space.
