Re: NASA Ivy

If only we went to the moon these days.....

Having recently stood by a Saturn V rocket it was seriously impressive, the sheer experience of being sat in a very, very small capsule on the top of that being lifted off into space, those guys are in a different league to land lubbers like us. Unless of course, there are chaps in our midsts who have served time at her Majesty's pleasure as Harrier jump jet pilots on an air craft carrier.

Re: NASA Ivy

Agree. It's taken on a new slant since todays news too.

There's another couple of Astronaut Ivy threads out there in the vacuum of thread space in case anyone reading hasn't seen them and has an interest. I'm terrible at searching though... I've no patience for it.

Cigars, liquor, space flight and not a steroid muscle in sight.  Truly the greatest.

They were very lean.  Not only no steroid but also no weight lifting.

How ironic that this thread gathers some interesting posts, then the man himself - Mr Armstrong says farewell..

RIP Mr Armstrong..

You really can see the late sixties skin look take shape with the military style short hair, and s/s shirts, and sta-prest. Have to say I warm to it more here.

Re: NASA Ivy

My missus has links to both Neil Armstrong and Buzz, here dad is personnel friends with both.

He does yearly talks on space, his last one was about the mars rover, and is often in touch with NASA over ideas he has. I used to joke he was the first Mexican in space, but he's very knowledgable on this field.

Very sad the Neil Armstrong has passed, so when you see the moon, give him a wink.

In one of the pictures above one of them is doing push ups, (or what you call press ups) between 2 chairs. It's the same thing as doing a bench press. They're both chest exercises, he's using his body as the resistance instead of a barbell or dumbells.
