FEMALE SPEAKER: I was in Springfield, Ohio. I was a newly married wife, and we had our very first color television, and we were watching on television, the Moon landing.

INTERVIEWER: What was going through your mind when you actually saw it landing?

FEMALE SPEAKER: I remembered all the Robert Heinlein and Arthur Clarke books that I read when I was a little girl and a teenager, and we thought that it would come true, but I never believed that it would be true so quickly in my -- because I was still very young. I was 25 years old. So that was the kind of thing that was going through my mind, the wonder of it, the fact that we actually did it, and the hope that we would continue to do those kinds of things.
