Our Future In Space

Have a cap, a baseball type cap With the NASA symbol emblazoned Reminds me of my visit to Cape Canaveral A symbol of man's dedication Feels so good wearing this hat Such a tribute to man's ingenuity Each day something else blows my mind The progress, the real continuity In leaps and bounds we move ahead It's left my poor mind in the dust Am really too old to keep abreast anymore Age makes it difficult to adjust So from little old me I'm sending this A tribute to those amazing people Who've forged this path to the heavens above To me it all seems so surreal © Jack Ellison 2013

    It's a little known fact: McDonnell Douglas in St. Louis, Missouri was a training place for the astronauts... Charlie Walker and his Electrophoreisis test in space were from here. My Mom , Dad, and Hubby all hobnobed with the astronauts until they retired... My father made the timing gears for the Gemini space crafts at Autotronics... They did the work of the computers before the computers were developed. St. Louis was way cooler than Florida... They trained from here and only flew from there.

    WOW!!! What an interesting tale you tell! To be part of that whole expeditionary force and era must have been so exciting and quite an honour to hobnob with those pioneers! Neat story! xoxoxox
