The gorgeous full moon from orbit, with the soft blue glow from my favorite planet! I hope our kids and grandkids are explorers, and go back one day...in peace.

Cuando la misión Apolo 11 llegó a la luna, los austronautas expresaron: (Aldrin) "Hermoso... hermoso..."
- (Armstrong) "La vista de una magnífica desolación."
- (Aldrin) "Magnífica definición."
