I am not sure if I have previously talked about my favourite movies, but if I have not, then this is a good moment and way to talk about it.
Perhaps one of my favourite movies became my favourite as a result of growing up with two boys, and naturally, living under the same roof you end up sharing some hobbies or interests, or getting your siblings involved into yours as a way to maintain a bond.

It is a Hollywood movie based in the real events of that particular NASA mission.

Every now and then I have been looking for ways to be informed and participate in events connected to this world. Sigue leyendo
