Thursday November 12, 2020 Smile for the Day: The First Space Selfie
On this day in 1966, Buzz Aldrin takes the first ‘space selfie’, a photo of himself performing extravehicular activity in space during the Gemini program:
First, a Story:
Buzz Aldrin was the second man to walk on the moon. Neil before him.
Second, a Song:
What would be more appropriate that a fellow Canadian, Commander Chris Hadfield, performing David Bowie’s A Space Oddity from the International Space Station.
Thought for the Day:
“I’m really looking forward to it, if you can imagine floating weightless, watching the world pour by through the big bay window of the space station playing a guitar; just a tremendous place to think about where we are in history.” – Chris Hadfield
Have a great day!
