The Slice

When a science-oriented little kid realizes you were alive during Apollo 11

Here are the answers to the four questions that inevitably come up.

"No, you couldn't actually see the spacecraft heading for the moon. But when you looked up at the sky after dark, you knew they were up there."

"Yes, of course, I was worried something might go wrong. Everyone was. A little."

"It took our minds off Vietnam for a little while."

"Well, after they got back, life went on. The next month, there was Woodstock. Then a few weeks after that the New York Mets won the World Series."
