Right in the middle of the 50th Anniversary of the Apollo 11 mission I figured it was a fitting time to make a thread on space and space exploration since it is the ......final frontier
So here's to Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins of the Apollo 11 mission and their successful voyage from the Earth to the Moon and back. Here's to all those whose hard work made it happen, granted a few of the major helpers had a long and storied history in helping the Nazi's develop the V2 rocket program and that cannot be dismissed or forgotten.
And I don't want this thread to be about ONLY American Astronauts either, the Soviet Cosmonauts were complete badasses as well who deserve their dues and their rocket program likewise had a dark beginning with ties to similarly surrendered/captured Nazi scientists. The Soviet space program was very secretive and lead to the Space Race where the USA and USSR went head to head in attempting to achieve as many goals as possible for the advancement of rocket technology, scientific experiments, and of course space exploration.
Please use this thread to post anything relevant to space, the space race, rocketry, and the like.
