ManOnMoon

46 years ago today Neil Armstrong took his first steps on the moon and for the first time a man from the planet earth had stepped on another world. When the event was televised I was at the Baltimore Civic Center waiting to hear the group, Blind Faith. The performance started late as drummer Ginger Baker was watching the moon landing and first steps on television before he went onstage. I had to wait until the next day to see the famous steps and hear Armstrong’s inspiring words on TV:

 “That’s one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind.”

The New Horizon’s space craft will fly by Pluto on July 14, 2015.  Above photo is from early July and a composite by NASA and Google Earth.

From the NASA fact sheet on the New Horizon’s mission:

The New Horizons mission will help us understand
worlds at the edge of our solar system by making
the first reconnaissance of the Pluto system and by
venturing deeper into the distant, mysterious Kuiper
Belt – a relic of solar system formation…

…closest approach (to Pluto) occurs on July 14, 2015.
