         The life and times of Mark and Paula Persons

Museum of Broadcasting
Saturday, May 14, 2016: 

Mark and Paula visited Wapakoneta, Ohio, Ohio, were they toured a space museum.

 

It's the story of Neil Armstrong, a U.S. Navy Korean War fighter pilot, who later was the first man to set foot on the moon. 
 
One exhibit explains the difficulty of landing a spaceship on the moon.  Lots of instruments to watch and adjustments to make.
 
Mark tried the simulator and did OK.  Not bad for a non-pilot.  He was somewhat prepared after attending Space Camp for adults about 25 years earlier.
 
The iconic moonscape photo of the first man on the moon.
 
Paula was "lost in space." 
 
Museum visitors were cautioned to learn and know the difference between men's and ladies rooms!
It took Mark a while, but he finally got it figured out. 
 

Quote of the day:    Space, the final frontier.   Mark    < Back to previous story Ahead to next story >
