A Trip to the Moon and a 86-Year-Old Archery Instructor | Today’s News | 8-8-16

Good morning! Here’s today’s news. Perhaps more than any other generation, we were inspired by the first moon landing.

Perhaps this is why I am so excited that a private company, for the first time, has been given permission to go to the moon!
