I just love these school newspapers. They bring back the excitement of waiting for the future to happen. It seemed like there was so much cool stuff to look forward to.
It all seemed so "scientific" (when did that become a guarantee that something WOULD happen?) As we observed the Moon and tested its surface and photographed it, we were confident. Going to the Moon was both very hard to do but also we were picking out our camping spot, our next place to launch from.
There were dangers and challenges but we had lived off the land before and the Moon was the next frontier to conquer and settle.
