MALE SPEAKER: Now? Oh, okay. Hi. I remember when Armstrong landed on the Moon. It was like yesterday. I was at a church function. It was a Sunday night. I lived out on the West Coast, and I remember the counselor pulled me and a few other guys over to watch this landing. There was about 40 of us there watching it, and everybody was just quiet, and we were just watching this, just going, "Someday we're going to be talking about this years to come," and I still remember it.

There was another time when my mom drug me out of the back yard. I was playing with my friends, and we watched the first TV transmission on, I believe it was, Echo. So it seems like those days with space and the program going, I remember just like yesterday, and I really enjoy this exhibit here. Thank you very much for taking the time.
