I've been in the presence . . .
. . . of astronauts . . .

. . . met a few at a Speedmaster event . . .

. . . and remember seeing Apollo 11 return to earth thru binoculars. (We were in Iran back then, without TV.)
If I were going to the moon, I'd take the Speedmaster . . .
. . . that should've made the trip in '69.
