“Ithink the United States should be a force in the world, a very friendly force, not an attempt to dominate, ”Mr. Collins said in a speech at George Washington University on Friday, according to the Russian Satellite News Agency on 19 July. ``.
In 1969, Collins flew in Earth Satellite orbit and two other crew members landed on the surface of the moon, the report said. Collins said that after completing this historic task, traveling to nearly 30 countries had an impact on his world outlook and his view of technological status.
'I think we need to take a few steps backwards to be consistent with the world's view of space exploration,'he said. In some ways, it may lead to a slowdown in development, but I do not believe that speed is the fundamental goal. I think it's more important that we all achieve our goals together.
It is understood that celebrations will be held throughout the United States this week to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing, and will climax from July 19 to 20. Fifty years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buz Aldrin were the first people in the world to set foot on the moon.
