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.
If you think it is worth, leave a note at my Visits book and criticize any or both of the the essays. Don´t leave anything out. Your comments will help me to improve them.
Mi próxima charla será en Granollers el 18 de Octubre con motivo del quicuagésimo aniversario del Apollo XI.
El MUNCYT ha iniciado su andadura hacia su exposición sobre la carrera y la exploración espacial que empezará alrededor de diciembre, y de la que soy comisario.
Dentro de las actividades previstas, está la de programar una película mensual relacionada con el Espacio.
El próximo 19 de Octubre comentaré la película Apolo XIII
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.
My next appointment will be on 18 October at Granollers in relation with the 50th anniversary of the Apollo XI.
The MUNCYT has already started the design of the exhibition about the Space Exploration that will open their doors next December.
I have been elected as one of the coordinators for this event.
As part of the activities related to this event, a movie is programmed once a month. Next 19 October I will comment the movie Apollo XIII.
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.
