Learning Storm

Question

Near two score & ten years since we began,

an integral meshing of god and man.

From six came twelve; three were lost;

Three more nearly paid the cost.

Those who dared to dream where eagles soar -

after 17 they said, "No more."

Apollo?

Yup! Sometimes easy ones are still fun. (to write, at least!) :lol:

Apollo program

JFK's 1961 address to Congress set a goal of landing a man on the moon by the end of the decade.

Apollo - Greek god of the sun. Saturn rockets used for launch - Saturn, Roman god of agriculture & harvest.

Six Apollo missions allowed 12 men to walk on the surface of the moon.

Apollo 1

Apollo 13

"The Eagle has landed."

Remaining Apollo missions were cancelled after the Apollo 17 mission.

Learning Storm -> Neil Armstrong

(played baritone in band, Purdue grad, 1st man to set foot on the moon, all-around cool guy)
