Follow the Apollo 11, 40 years later

The year was 1969, some three blokes on an incredible mission to conquer one of the biggest mankind dreams, walking on the moon. It meant a milestone in scientific and technological communities and for space exploration.

It all started with President’s John F. Kennedy address on the Nation’s Space Effort:

We choose to go to the moon. We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win, and the others, too.

Then Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin, and Michael Collins were crammed into a tiny space craft that would take them to the moon. The rest is history. What a better way to celebrate Apollo’s 11 lunar landing 40th anniversary than with a re-enactment of their trip using modern technologies. A website called We Choose The Moon ( by the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum allows to follow the Apollo 11 mission in real time just as it happened on 1969. On the page there is streaming audio of the mission, including updates from the spacecraft and mission control. There are also Twitter accounts for mission control (@AP11_CAPCOM), Apollo 11 (@AP11_SPACECRAFT), and lunar landing module (@AP11_EAGLE).

On July 20, 1969 mankind achieved something that was a dream since man became man, landing on the moon. Be sure to visit to commemorate and remember an historic event.

Follow up to Paseo Interlomas mall

Last year I wrote a post regarding a new mall that is under construction on my neighborhood, Paseo Interlomas (see original post here) and I wanted to update on the subject.
The construction last year was almost drawn to a stop (I suspect lack of funding was the main reason), but in the past couple of months the construction site seems to have been reactivated and the are now busy as ants.
I have also noticed that on the developer’s website, there is some updated information and new renderings. Here is the description found on such website:
Paseo Interlomas is the modern version of a park combined with a regional shopping center. This place will be the first community center in the area to be developed inside a spectacular building with open and closed spaces meeting the highest security standards. This commercial concept with nearly 1.4 million square feet of built area and a parking area of more than 1.9 million square feet will include two department stores 16 stadium type movie theaters with THX mega screens (6 VIP), 12 restaurants, a food court and 180 retail spaces of all sort of services and specialty shops. The following are some of the project’s attractions: skating rink, health and fitness gym, a family entertainment center, children’s attractions and dexterity games as well as an art exhibition center and a hotel.
And here are the renderings:

From the renderings it shows that we can expect a Liverpool and the ubiquitous Sanborns. I will continue updating when I know more about it.

Update now the mall is open, read more about it in Paseo Interlomas now open

I still exist, look at my new design

Hey there, welcome again to my blog. A blog which I have left unattended for five (long) months, sorry for that.

I tried to choose a new design that is simple and that I can modify and tweak as my blog goes on. It may still need some tweaks. What do you think of the new design? Is it too dark? did you prefer the old design? Please let me know.

I promise to post more frequently, at least once a month. If you have anything that would like to see on the blog, don’t hesitate and leave a comment.

Finally, for those returning after the long hiatus, thanks. You are the people that matter the most :)
