Man, the joy in that room. Good for them!

I was struck by how young so many of them looked. I could be completely wrong but if feels like the control room for Apollo 11 was quite a bit older.


We drove to Grand Island Nebraska in 2017 to see the total solar eclipse. NASA had a crew there launching weather balloons with cameras to view the eclipse from above. They were all pretty young and everyone wore t-shirts that said “Actually, it IS rocket science”. I thought that was quite humorous.
