If you've read some of my previous posts you will know that I am a fan of the band Jethro Tull as well as being a bit of a comic art buff who's fasicnated by space travel and human endeavour in that field.

So, following on from my last post, and using my latest toys and fascination for video editing here's my small tribute to the American manned space programme in the 50th year of manned spaceflight, coupled with Tull's 'For Michael Collins. Jeffrey and Me', a song which has always interested me in its presentation of what must be one of the lonliest moments for any individual in human history.

The video extracts taken from the TV Drama 'Moonshot' and others pieces of news film.

It's dedicated to Michael Collins, Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin and the first solo astronauts and cosmonauts, it's inspired by youtube poster and Tull fan 'whitershadeofpale' [Kevin] for his great video montages and to Tull for producing one of my favourite pieces of music.

I did it for the Tull chat board at

Hope you enjoy watching and listening to it as much as I enjoyed putting it together from the various masterful film and audio elements that make it.
