    I’m a closet space geek. Have a dear friend that works in the Huntsville com station. She gave me a lapel pin that was on the iss and two 50year anniversary coins. I follow what I can. Saw every shuttle launch. Got goose bumps at Kennedy walking across the gangplank that the Saturn mission guys used. OK IM A GEEK. LOL

    It is really exciting to see so many missions going on. I love anything that has a massive fireball behind it.

    The second on the list is what really impresses me. We needed SpaceX and the rest 50 years ago.

    Then maybe I could have retired on the Moon like I thought I would when I was a kid in the 60s.
