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.

El próximo día 2 de julio a las 19:00 se presenta en Espacio Fundación Telefónica el libro "El gran salto al abismo" en el que el autor ha desgranado mi vida en conjunción con la carrera espacial.
Mi música: Boogie boogie, Rock, música clásica
Películas: Ciencia ficción, comedias, thrillers, terror
Idiomas: Español, inglés y algo de francés
Mi lema preferido: Carpe diem - ¡Disfruta del aquí y el ahora!
Para hacer posible aquel "Salto de gigante" fue necesario el trabajo y la participación de 400.000 personas y una red de seguimiento y comunicaciones impensable hasta entonces. Ahí va un pequeño recuerdo.
Siendo este el año del quincuagésimo aniversario del Apollo XI, no podía dejar pasar la ocasión de hacer un pequeño escrito para conmemorarlo.
Los tenéis en mis ensayos.
Espero que os gusten.
Como siempre, vuestras críticas servirán para mejorar.
Next July 2 at 19:00 at Espacio Fundación Telefónica, the book "El gran salto al abismo" will be presented. The author interlaces my life with the Space Race.
My music: Boogie boogie, Rock, clasic
Movies: Sci-Fi, comedy, thrillers, terror
Languages: Spanish, english and a bit of french
My moto: Carpe diem - Enjoy the here and now!
To make that "Giant leap" possible, the participation and work of 400,000 talented persons around the world, and the most unthinkable tracking and communications network (MSFN, NASCOM) were utilized.
Here´s my contribution.
Being this the 50th anniversary of the Apollo XI, I couldn´t but do a small writeup to commemorate it.
They´re both in my essays.
Hope you like them.
As always, your comments will help me to create a better product. Thanks.
