A Conversation for The Moon

I touched the Moon

Back in March 2001 I was lucky enough to be able to visit the Kennedy Space Centre and fulfill a long held ambition to watch a Space Shuttle launch. (STS 102 Discovery).
While there, I visited the new Saturn/Apollo exhibition and found that the display included a piece of moonrock under a protective cover that you were able to reach out to touch.
Almost everyone I saw did just that. I did too and it gave me just as much of a kick as the launch. I think of that each time I look at the Moon and it still gives me goosebumps.

Wow! That is really, really cool...

Have you ever heard that Rush song about the shuttle? I think it's the last song on the Signals album...

*rumages around a bit in the drawer*

I was right. It's the last track on that album and it's called 'Countdown'. It's really brilliant with real NASA radio feeds mixed into the song...

Yes, it was a great experience. The Saturn/Apollo exhibition is fantastic.. out of this world!
I haven't heard the album you mention but I'll be sure to try to track it down. Thanks.
