My first virtual experience of walking on the Moon compares not to Neil Armstrong’s first grand accomplishment; however, it was surreal today. Curiosity, STEM, and necessity inspires inventions and makes dreams reality, or virtual reality. Thanks to the spark of genius in inventor Nurakhmed Yatypov (US Patent No. 5,846,134 pictured below), we may have a little independence and enjoy the freedom of fun to critically think!

I’m putting one of Yatypov’s Death Star moon patented contraptions in my house! After today’s test of California courage, I’m going to moon walk my dreams like Michael Jackson! Watch out universe! As we celebrate the Apollo-50, let us continue to spark ingenuity, near and far.

Out of the tumultuous humanity issues of the Vietnam and Civil Rights wars of the 60s, a monumental leap for mankind to benefit from is simply immeasurable. Thanks to NASA’s Apollo 11 mission, with the teamwork of Neil Armstrong and Katherine Johnson, we conquered the moon and now our trusty Gravitational Positional Systems (GPS) are a staple in traveling the globe, easily and safely. May we never forget our monumental achievements.

Happy 50th Anniversary Apollo and all of those at NASA who worked to achieve such a majestic moment, from the Moon to Mars! I can’t help thinking that after finding the California courage to virtually moonwalk, just maybe I’ll to become an astronaut.  After all a #caliisme girl can only California dream it!

Invent to infinity and beyond!!
