I had the privilege and the luck of being at the right place in the right time and so, I have participated in the Space Race since the first manned Apollo was launched (ApolloVII) to the last in the mission Program (Apollo XVII).
After that, I have participated in every mission that went to space for 43 years, including all the manned missions (Skylab, Shuttle, Apollo-Soyuz).
I thought I would like to share with you the thrill of those special years.
The file included is already prepared for double page printing if you like to have a hard copy.
It seems that the media and many official organizations are trying to make people think that a manned trip to Mars is going to take place in the very near future.
I personally think that many questions have not been answered and the supposed trip is not going to take place as soon as they say.
I´ve written a small essay with the unanswered questions and I would like to share them with you.
I´m not a pessimistic person but I am convinced that I will not see such a trip.
There´s little to add to the title. I´ve prepared the archive to print in double page if you want a hard copy
This is the second part. As in the first, the archive is prepared to print in double page. Hope you enjoy it.
What was the solution for the extra 4 Saturn V vehicles in NASA´s backyard.

En el 40 aniversario de las naves Voyager había que escribir algo sobre ellas, así que me he puesto el mono de trabajo y he hecho una pequeña reseña que he subido a esta WEB.
Nada de información técnica que de eso hay cientos de publicaciones, un pequeño repaso de su inicio y de su devenir en estos 40 años.
Espero que os guste.
Como siempre, vuestras críticas servirán para mejorar.

Going to the Moon was not just the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo. It took a few more programs to determine the best landing place and what the surface was like.
I´ve written about the initial steps to get to the final result. After Project Ranger, and in conjunction with Project Surveyor, Project Lunar Orbiter was crucial in such determination.
I hope you llike it.
Also, your comments will help me to create a better product. Thanks.
