Workers from the assembly line on were dedicated and felt being a part of something valuable and historic. The descent lower stage was equipped with a rocket motor to slow the rate of descent to the lunar surface. Many of the original serial numbers are missing or partially missing, which is going to make mission identification difficult. Now that is truly evil…and un-American. Like Loading...

During the mission, astronauts Armstrong and Aldrin became the first human explorers of another world. Very true but at least we had some fairly amazing things going on we could all root for as a nation.

But then my father was a reasonable, scholarly man with little interest in psychiatry- who went on to serve with great gallantry in Special Ops.
The Lunar Module LM was used for descent to the lunar surface and served as a base while the astronauts were on the Moon. We are right now onboard the Seabed Worker headed back to Cape Canaveral after finishing three weeks at sea, working almost 3 miles below the surface.
Have a news tip, correction or comment? We have a gigantic, expensive administrative state that spends most of its time moving our money around based on political calculations.
Totally awesome! We were delighted and honored that Buzz Aldrin made the trip to present the award himself.
