Michael Collins has died at age 90 of cancer. Of the three astronauts who went to the moon on Apollo 11, he's the one who got ripped off and had to stay in the command module orbiting the moon while Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin got to go to the moon. LOL, I bet *that* p!ssed him off! Now of the original moon astronauts only Buzz Aldrin remains alive. Anyway, this was him as a younger man (center) flanked by Armstrong and Aldrin. Another hero passes on. https://www.foxnews.com/science/apollo-11-astronaut-michael-collins-dead-at-90 What were people's thoughts at the time of the moon landing? Here is part of the conversation between the President, Richard Nixon, and Neil Armstrong (on the moon): "Nixon: Hello, Neil and Buzz. I'm talking to you by telephone from the Oval Room at the White House. And this certainly has to be the most historic telephone call ever made from the White House. I just can't tell you how proud we all are of what you have done. For every American, this has to be the proudest day of our lives. And for people all over the world, I am sure that they too join with Americans in recognizing what an immense feat this is. Because of what you have done, the heavens have become a part of man's world. And as you talk to us from the Sea of Tranquility, it inspires us to redouble our efforts to bring peace and tranquility to Earth. For one priceless moment in the whole history of man, all the people on this Earth are truly one: one in their pride in what you have done, and one in our prayers that you will return safely to Earth. Armstrong: Thank you, Mr. President. It's a great honor and privilege for us to be here, representing not only the United States, but men of peace of all nations, and with interest and a curiosity, and men with a vision for the future. It's an honor for us to be able to participate here today"
