We’ll all say that. We’ll all go on and make the place safe. Roads, cities. New sky, new soil.

The exciting part for me, as a pilot, was the landing on the moon.
That was the time that we had achieved the national goal of putting Americans on the moon. The landing approach was, by far, the most difficult and challenging part of the flight.
