Space has always fascinated me. There’s something about the mystery that gets my imagination going.
This week marked the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 Lunar Space Mission.

Apollo 11 was the spaceflight that first landed humans on the Moon. Commander Neil Armstrong and lunar module pilot Buzz Aldrin formed the American crew that landed the Apollo Lunar Module Eagle on July 20, 1969, at 20:17 UTC. Command module pilot Michael Collins flew the command module Columbia alone in lunar orbit while they were on the Moon's surface. Armstrong and Aldrin spent 21 hours 31 minutes on the lunar surface at a site they named Tranquility Base before lifting off to rejoin Columbia in lunar orbit. (*1)

The 3-man crew who made this amazing trip, have opened the door to a whole new world. A world that is bigger than anyone can even imagine. We have had lots of space exploration happen since with probes and shuttles, even the International Space Station, but what hasn’t changed is the mystery that is still out there.
We see this amplified today with movies and tv shows all “theorizing” and using imagination to create worlds other than our own.
The Adventures of Pookie team is working on our second book in the Thor’s Dreamland Adventures series. It will be titled Trouble in Space.
