 The start of the Space Race and NASA´s  Apollo Program

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.

     A manned trip to Mars?

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.
