First American Space Walk: 1965, Great footage
Its hard to imagine that this image was taken 52(!) years ago.
In the sixties the space race was on and our country took great pride in technological a scientific advancements. The cold war served as a catalyst to make the leap into space and eventually to the moon.
It was an exceptional time in human history for any person who loved science and served to inspire a generation. Unfortunately, in modern culture, much of space news is often overlooked and shuttle launches are not paid much attention unless there is tragedy.
Thats about to change now though, with Mars One.
