    I remember watching the moon landing when I was 8 years in Biloxi MS. kind of like those who were older when JFK died. You knew exactly where you were when it happened.

    SALUTE!!!

    Much respect to the man! He did something which would still be a terrifying prospect even now.

    And the space age fades farther into the mists. Everything seemed possible for a time and technology would take us there.

    Instead, we have Angry Birds.

    Technology used to awe us. Now it's just a commodity that's outcome ends up being disposed of when the next best thing comes out.

    It's the anniversary of his death. Or, at least, it was a couple of days ago.

    According to ABC news his family said he died of complications from heart surgery from a few weeks ago. The article is dated today.

    Are you sure it doesn't say he died one year ago? Because he died August 25th 2012.

    RIP

    A great man.

    The age of space exploration was technologically/inspirationally sexy in a way that solving problems and innovating solutions to our myriad challenges here is not.

    Still - that's what we need to focus on.

    Remember those Space Sticks ?

    Weren't those just like early Power bars ?

    Tang sucked too...

    Unmanned missions are far less expensive and MUCH safer than manned missions.
    That said, I look forward to an international manned mission to Mars.

    and things like Kepler are discovering exoplanets at unprecedented rates.

    The Space Age isn't fading.

    We are at the very beginning of it.

    Yeah, Angry Birds is all we have. Nothing else. :rolleyes:

    During the space race, we also had the hula hoop, Twister, and Gilligan's Island.
