MGR Guide: Collectors Edition (Character Profiles) ½
Originally circulated on the internet by heart-eater. Was given to me earlier tonight by forceway. These images are really good for reference and I don’t see them around very much so felt the need to reupload them.
On July 16, 1969, the Apollo 11 crew blasted off and four days later opened the door of the lunar module and Neil Armstrong stepped out onto the lunar surface. Armstrong’s radio back to Earth that his was ‘one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind’ became instantly one of the most quoted and known phrases uttered in the name of science. The Apollo program was started less than a decade earlier with success following success. Named by then NASA Director Abe Silverstein (who later said it was like naming his baby) after the Ancient Greek god known for knowledge and who was represented as a flaming chariot shooting across the sky. Hats off today to Buzz Aldrin, Neil Armstrong and Michael Collins. All born in 1930 and still healthy and looking to the skies.
