Thanks for all the birthday-wishes!
It’s been a nice day with lots of delightful birthday wishes. Thanks a lot!
I grew up in the Apollo era and was born just a few months after man first set foot on the lunar surface. Ever since my childhood days I have loved space exploration. I remember when I was 3-4 years old, running around in the garden at night with an empty bottle of Tabac aftershave that I got from my dad – held up against the starry night sky – imagining that it was this black and white Apollo spacecraft traveling to the moon!
Yesterday I was hoping for the Space Shuttle Discover, STS-131, to blast of on the second last Space Shuttle mission in history – but unfortunately there was a hydrogen gas-leak from the bleed off valve and the mission had to be scrubbed. Looking forward to the blast off!
