One Foot Forward

Hi friend of PRX,

We do it every day. One step. Where we step can change everything.

Neil Armstrong, an Ohio kid, rode his Schwinn to an airfield for flying lessons. At 15. A terrifying test flight almost killed him. Then he nearly died in orbit. We watched blurry images as he shimmied to narrow steps and took a little step onto…what? No one knew what awaited him.

You don’t have to go to the moon to take a daring step. Find something unsure and new on PRX. Air it. Many will follow.
