FEMALE SPEAKER: Well, I remember I was at home. My daughter who was born in 1966, she had a friend over to spend the night, and I have pictures of them watching it on TV, very, very exciting times for everyone here in the United States.

INTERVIEWER: Outside of the man stepping on the Moon, do you have any other memories of NASA that you want to talk about?

FEMALE SPEAKER: For the first time or anything about it?

INTERVIEWER: Anything about NASA, period, that has stuck in your mind that you would like to talk about that has been memorable for you over the past 50 years.

FEMALE SPEAKER: Okay. I'm sure that one of the most memorable things is when the astronauts were killed in one of the Apollo flights, and it was something that we really, really, you know, were very saddened by and something that was memorable.

As a matter of fact, shortly after that, we went to NASA down in Florida, and we had a family reunion down in that area, and that was one of the main things that we made sure that we did. We went to NASA and enjoyed that.

Other than that, we have been to the Space Center, the Johnson Space Center in Texas and Houston Houston, yes, because my daughter and her family lives in Missouri City. So that was one of the things, and of course, we took pictures there as well.
