The Apollo 10 was on world tour in 1970 and my parrents took me to the Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen to see the landing module from the command service module “Charlie Brown”. This was the last test voyage prior to the moon landing. It was the second lunar orbitter “Snoopy” and it decended to a height of 15,4 kilometers from the lunar surface before heading back to earth. The crew of Apollo 10 was: Thomas P Stafford, Eugene Cernan and John Young. Young and Cernan later came to walk on the moon. They were the last men to set foot on the moon with the Apollo 17 mission.

I believe it was here my interest for space began. This is not only a space capsule but also a time capsule(1970). It is me in front and no it is not a cell phone in my hand 🙂
American culture was presented to me at the same time. This is my first encounter with a Candy Floss…
