Then, slowly turning in her cumbersome space suit, she faced the welcoming committee, dressed in their modern, more comfortable suits.
“Welcome to Lunar City,” said a disembodied voice in her helmet. “Congratulations on the safe completion of the 150th anniversary of the first moon flight in the restored Saturn rocket and landing module. My great-grandfather, Neil Armstrong, would have been proud of you!”
