40 years

I watched it live, and it still gives me goosebumps to watch it today.

That said… It was a HUGE mistake to do it that way.

We should have concentrated on space infrastructure and a phased approach to colonizing space. Instead we built disintegrating totem poles for a one time shot. In 1969 NASA told me I could be living on the moon in 30 years. Now I’d just be happy to see a permanent human presence on the moon before the end of this century. I won’t hold my breath though because it’s not going to happen as long as NASA is in charge.
