Hello,
I have started this topic in order to share with you a sad new: last night, Ruiz de Gopegui died, reason for which today is a mournful day. Ruiz de Gopegui was director of the Fresnedillas de la Oliva space center, where the first signs of the moon landing: "Houston, here I base tranquility. The eagle has landed", the phrase pronounced by Neil Armstrong when Apollo 11 stepped on the Moon, were first received.

His death is a great loss because he was a true icon of science worldwide and, specially, in Spain. He will be forever in our memories. Rest in peace.

Ruth
