Precious moments

❝ Whenever I look at the moon I am reminded of that precious moment, over four decades ago, when Neil and I stood on the desolate, barren, yet beautiful, Sea of Tranquility, looking back at our brilliant blue planet Earth suspended in the darkness of space, I realized that even though we were farther away from earth than two humans had ever been, we were not alone. Virtually the entire world took that memorable journey with us. ❞

Buzz Aldrin’s official statement
on the passing of Neil Armstrong

❝ May he Rest in Peace,
and may his vision for our
human destiny in space
be his legacy. ❞
