MALE SPEAKER: I had previously watched the Gemini launches going up. My cousin worked on the Cape, and when I was young, a younger man, I was lucky enough to go there and watch how launches happened.

Then when I was in college and went, my sophomore year, the entire dormitory was gathered around the set, waiting and watching anxiously to see what would happen when Apollo 11 landed and you saw Neil Armstrong go down the stairs and make his famous statement.

Probably, the best thing I remember is the statement by one of the astronauts, which hopefully will come to pass soon, "When will we go back?"
