400,000 plus 2

It took the efforts of 400,000 people plus two to put a man on the moon.  This week is Astros‘ week and how can any baseball fan forget that Mission Control is in Houston?  The below video was shot almost seven years before America landed on the moon.

During our podcast featuring the Houston Astros, Ed Kasputis will be interviewing Jack Moore from Space Center Houston.  Ed will also interview Charlie and Sandy Brading from Wapakoneta, Ohio.  The Bradings have known Neil Armstrong for over 60 years.

Our Astros’ podcast will be released on Friday, August 6, 2010.
