    Found this on the web. Amazing stuff.

    Can't believe this is from 50 years ago.

    I watched a great DOC on the Apollo mission called "Moon Machines"......Starting from when JFK announced our intention to put a man on the moon before the end of the
    decade.....Which surprised and shook everyone in NASA......To the end at Apollo 17......Here's something that took me by complete surprise.....The most complex and integral piece
    of equipment was........The gloves on the moon suits......And seeing and meeting the the most unsung of all the crews that put all of the segmented pieces together were the
    seamstresses that sewed the suits together......It was really good.......

    Who would have thought that by 2016, only the Russians could carry men to and from space?

    You'd have to be slightly insane to strap yourself to the top of that thing.

    Fun fact...
    More humans have walked on the Moon (12) than have been to the bottom of "Earths" Mariana trench (3).

    I used to devour books full of this sort of illustration as a kid. I still would if I knew where to find them.

    As a kid in 3rd grade this was the biggest thing all of that year. we learned so much about it and of course were allowed to stay up late to watch it. To think a majority of this was done with computers that had the power of a simply calculator is amazing. The greatest generation was really the greatest.

    I can't believe how the US seemed to drop the ball on that. I mean I understand budget cuts and politics and what not but c'mon...How could we let that happen?

    Well, when we as a country have a military budget of $598.5 Billion vs NASA's $18 Billion, it's easy to see how this happened. It was said in 2011 that "The US military spends as much in 23 days as NASA spends in a year" (Neil deGrasse Tyson)
