I watched an IMAX movie of a launch at Cape Canaveral. The amount of water they flood the launch pad with is amazing.

My dad worked on the F1 engines for Rocketdyne. I still have a few rocket bolts. About 1-1/4 long. They were all replaced after ground testing.

Did you lose your nuts? LOL

j/k

Seriously cool.

I wasn't alive for the launch. I was born just before they left the moon.

Always felt a closeness to NASA and space exploration. Now I work for them.

Had to be some really smart people to pull off the Apollo 11 moon landing with the technology they had in the 60's.

Wow. A friend was an underwater demolition man in the Navy and he became an early Seal. After retirement, he went to work at the Cape. I wondered why he went there and he told me that rockets were just conrolled explosions and his background was perfect.

Makes more sense after seeing that.

I loved touring that place. I remember walking into the building and when they opened the door you are greeted by the 5 engines of that puppy.

They also took us school kids on a tour of Huntsville, AL. around the 6th grade. Wish I had applied myself to a career like that field.
