Apollo 11 day 3
As the crew of Apollo 11 streaked toward lunar orbit and into the 50th hour of their mission, the spaceflight fever seemed to continue to spread. I distinctly recall sitting the front seat of my dad's old pickup truck, parked in the driveway, wearing football helmets and pretending to be on our way to the moon in the command module. I'm sure millions of kids all over the nation were doing such odd stuff. Considering how silly that sounds... one can imagine how weird we'd get after the actual moon landing.
