Guest Book Highlights

January 17, 2017 "I had the honor to interview Captain Cernan last May for a newspaper article I wrote for the Hudson Star Observer. He was generous with his time, thoughtful in his answers and shared his desire for the students I teach STEM programs to, to know more of the early history of the space program; how difficult and challenging a time it was. I will teach those programs for him. A true hero. RIP" - Christopher Mick (Hudson, WI)
