Destination moon.

Friday, 17 July, 2009

If for some reason we absolutely had to get somebody up to the moon anytime soon, we could not do it. By “we”, I mean Humanity.

It was the technical achievement which defined the United States in the 20th C. Oddly, we didn’t figure out a way to mass produce space adventure and the Soviets did after the fall.

It’s all fascinating and learning and making it work and inspiration and all that crap but what did we get out of it? How is the world a better place any time over the last 40 years since 12 Americans set foot on the surface of the moon?
