For mankind

in the shadow of the moonAfter a long and tiring week, we made our way to the movie theatre to watch this wonderful film by Ron Howard.

In the Shadow of the Moon was a wonderful collection of stories from the men who have travelled to the moon. I know it probably sounds like it’s no great feet now that we are in the 21st century but in the 1960s, men were not afraid to dream of it and risk their lives to get there.

It was most moving to see the world (not just one country) hold their breath for those first 3 men (Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins) as they move towards that new frontier and then witness all the cheering as they successfully landed on the moon and back to earth.

I rate this movie as a must-see.
