I was only 6 years old when this video came out. It was a time of dreams, the “space race”, and full-throttle towards what the “future” held in store. Amazing times to have lived through!
Me too. I remember watching it or another movie like it in class when I was in first grade.
It was the same year that my grandfather died. He was born in 1880, a few months after Edison invented the light bulb and years before the invention of radio or the airplane. He was already an adult when the Wright brothers flew the first airplane at Kitty Hawk and lived to see men orbit the Earth. If he had lived for two more years he would have seen men walk on the moon. Now those were really amazing times to have lived through.
