On the way towards the moon, I was filled with a ton of emotions. While on the spacecraft with Command Module Pilot, Stuart Roosa and Lunar Module Pilot, Edgar Mitchell, you would never believe how amazing space is and how Earth looks while you’re in such a dark place just floating around. All your butterflies go away and you look down and see Earth’s beautiful colors. You don’t exactly see what you normally see on an everyday basis while you’re up there. But finally, we landed on the moon. The bumpy lunar surface made me realize that my dream came true, from when I was a little kid. You’re up there and you think you are in a whole different place. Feeling weightlessness “is completely different from being on a roller coaster, it is more like motionlessness than movement.” You feel so light that it’s something you need to experience. I recall looking at the craters of the surface and performing science experiments to bring back to Earth, or the place we call home. It is an experience that is unforgettable and truly a once in a lifetime opportunity.
