When I was fifteen months old my mother sat me down in front of the television set long after my bedtime. “Watch this, it’s important,” she said, and together we watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walk on the Moon. I do not remember this, but she claims it is the reason I ended up working in the space field.
Last year I got to work with Neil Armstrong. On the last day of our project he asked if he could show us a video, and then he told us how he landed on the Moon. I cannot forget this, and it is the reason I ended up working in the space field.
Thank you, Neil.
