I have to say this whole Mars thing has got me in a tizzy!

It’s making me nostagic for the day we landed on the moon. Coincidentally, SharkBoy and I were both swimming with rubber boots on at our respective summer places back in July 20, 1969 (albeit in different provinces at the time) and we were both called in from the water to witness the moon landing on TV.

And now here we are on another planet with HD cameras and lasers! Been a long time coming.

Can you imagine sending this video back in time to NASA and saying “Keep going guys!” We’d have colonies by now.

    Where did you live. Because I was in Toronto as a child and we watched it at night around 10 or 11 since that was when it was broadcast live.

      Memory is a funny thing… especially at 4 years old. Maybe it was a re-broadcast? We’re both pretty sure about being called in to watch it.
