A very special visit

On Monday afternoon we got to meet Mr Rutherford. His father worked on the Apollo space missions building part of the rocket. He had lots of interesting facts to tell us and he showed us original space badges collected by his father. These badges were given out to the astronauts after each space mission. If you look closely at each the picture on it helps to tell what happened on each flight. We really like the badge with the eagle on it as this is when man first landed on the moon and the famous phrase "the eagle has landed" came from.
