July 20, 1969. Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong walked on the moon.My first vacation memory is of a trip to Florida with my grandparents in 1975. We did Disney, but we also visited the Kennedy Space Centre. I drove a moon buggy, and was fascinated by space.
January 28, 1986. My 16th birthday, Challenger exploded on take-off. It fascinated me, that visit to Florida flooded back, and as I had talks with career counsellors in high school, I expressed my wish to be an astronaut.
January 7, 2005. I met Buzz Aldrin at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. He was the first guy named Buzz to walk on the moon, maybe, one day, I can be the second.
Richard Branson‘s Virgin Galactic will start up next year, all I need to do is come up with a quarter million to make it happen.
