Worthwhile

The Huston Chronicle has outdone itself. I love this format and show. I love all things Apollo, but this is truly one of the best.

Brings back the excitement of July 1969

Althought I was not a resident of Houston at the time, this brings back memories of the Space Race and the decade of the 1960's. Great that Houston's Daily Newspaper is bringing us this opportunity to be washed over with a feeling of actually being there!
