I recently took a trip to the Houston Space Center and was really looking forward to seeing a Saturn V with my own eyes. As a youth, like most of my generation, I really wanted to be an Astronaut studying every image I could find of the lunar missions. The video of the Saturn V with chunks of ice cascading down as it cleared the platform was always impressive. The idea of launching what was basically a skyscraper toward the moon was unimaginable. Almost as much unimaginable as the fact that it has been over forty-five years since anyone has set foot on the moon today.
