Was just checking out facebook. I follow Buzz Aldrin as I am a space freak and he just posted his photo



He commented about showing off his Omega Speedmaster :) I've asked him if he still owns it but no reply yet! Hoping he'll take a tenner for it as it's now a old watch and has done a few million miles :grin:

Space, that is way out there .........

Tony that is a very nice watch he has and it has a lot of mileage too.

I had a friend in ...... Colorado Springs, Colorado, that was a Space guy before also and his Son was a
Amateur Dragracer and " A Pilot ". I met him through his son and became good friends.
He wrote some books about some of his adventures.
His name was ........ " Colonel James B. Irwin ". He was on the .... " NASA Apollo 15 Space mission, "
and a .... " Man that walked on the Moon ".

He was one of the men that found the remains of ..... " Noah's Ark on the Mount Ararat's Expedition ".
The last time I saw James, I attended his Funeral in (1991) because he was a friend I had met and made.
He established a club for young people called......... " The High Flight Foundation", in Colorado Springs, Colorado.
A foundation for young Flyer's and Pilots.
The books are titled .......... " More than an Ark on Ararat ", " More than Earthlings ", and " To Rule the Night ".

I have a bunch of personal autographed books he has written.
He was a very good friend and nice Man I had come to know.
And he loved watchs and had a bunch of them too.

Only book I have that was signed by someone who's been in space is by George Takei :D

They were 'the right stuff' aye!

Personally I'm atheist through and through so Noah's ark is about as real to me as Spiderman but I have to take my hat off to anyone who's been lucky enough to go into space. I'd give my life to do it once... or die trying :) It must be amazing to see the fragile earth from outside it's thin atmosphere! I envy those men and women who have travelled out to space.

Well Tony that book has been............
" To where no Man has gone Before " , and it went there with
" Warp Drive ".

George Takei, I met once here at a gathering at some guys house
on the North Shore. Nice guy and really very friendly. I asked him if he knew how the
Two Whales were doing, and if Scotty is still talking to computers ?
He said Scotty always laugh's when people asked that.

Then he started to laugh real hard, when I told him I would like to learn
" How to " De-Materialize ", and get beamed some where."
He said me too me too some day when Scotty is not to busy fighting Cleon's.
