Moon Landing

There are loads of iconic images that came from the moon landings and subsequent trips into space.

I recently was at a presentation, and someone included this image which I had never seen. Apparently it has been recently released by NASA. It shows a young Neil Armstrong and is taken shortly after his return from that first moon-walk.

It is an beautiful photo. The joy and emotion that is etched on his face tells just how big a deal this was. It’s the look of a man who knows he has just made history.
