Fly Me to the Moon

“One small step for man,

one giant leap for mankind.”

Neil Armstong

1930 - 2012

This morning I had to inform my son that one of his heroes passed away. One of his movie favorites is ”Fly Me To The Moon”. It’s not the best movie in the world, but the story has a romantic touch to it. That is, if you like technology, like my 8 year old does. We sometimes talk about this walking on the Moon, especially when we have a big full Moon on the horizon. The kid wants to go there himself. But the funny thing is, he doesn’t allow me to go to Mars. The Moon is only minutes away, Mars 225 days, one-way.

I was looking for the part of the movie where Armstrong set foot on the Moon, instead I will give you the full trailer. Maybe I will rip that part sometime and replace it afterwards.
