Neil Armstrong had been getting ready for his mission to the Moon for over three years. To resist microgravity conditions, he had to learn how to walk sideways, by being strapped and suspended at an angle and trying to walk along walls. His limits were tested through an intense diet and sleep regimen since in space he would only have beef and vegetables previously dehydrated and stuffed into a package. Back in the day, astronauts had to experience the desert, jungle, open sea, and arctic survival training. These days it’s a lot more structured, but back then it was more of a “let’s drop this person in the middle of nowhere with no supplies and see if they make it.” Before landing on the Moon, he had to gather and study rock samples in the Grand Canyon, explore ancient volcano formations in the Nevada National Security Site, and look into gas and lava vents, lava lakes, and pit craters in various locations in Hawaii.

Seconds, minutes, hours, days, go by quickly and leave traces not only on people, but also on things. This is how objects are transformed with the passing of time and how they change their shape, color, and appearance so much that they seem unrecognizable when compared to a new specimen.
