And even if the requisite fuel were produced, it would still have to be shown that the rocket machine would operate at 459 degrees below zero the temperature of interplanetary space. and yet it moves. i opened the hatch and dust from the station flew in like little sparklets, looking like tiny snowflakes on a frosty day. in fact, i'm sure it was the most fun that i'll ever have in my life. it is very hard to describe what you feel when you stand on the threshold of a whole new era. of a whole new age mankind alone has the power to carry out this fundamental change in the universe. my god, thiokol, when do you want me to launch, next april? there's no reason why, in the next century, it should cost more to go to the moon than it costs to fly around the world today. too many of us have lost the passion and emotion of the remarkable things we've done in space. we learned a lot about the moon, but what we really learned was about the earth. we're all aware that for over 200 years and certainly over the last two months, freedom rings loud and clear across this country but right here and right now, it's time to let freedom roar!.
