This amazes me. I mean, these guys were doing this with slide rules, and they managed to send a space ship into space, point it at a moving target, land on that moving target, let a man walk on it without atmosphere, and then come back–another moving target, might I add.
It makes me wonder what we’re up to now that we have so much information at our fingertips. With computers all over our homes, tucked into our pockets and running everything from banking to government programs, shouldn’t we be doing more?
But then, information and technological potential doesn’t take into account human nature which gets sidetracked by politics, amassing money and petty jealousies. You can give us the most powerful computers ever known to mankind, and we’ll still just text each other pictures of cats saying silly things with poor grammar. 😉
I might be in a minority here, but I think it would be a good thing if our technological advances slowed down. We aren’t finished with the little things yet, like learning how to take care of each other and stopping to smell the scent of warm country air. We only have so many years in our lifespan, and personally, I don’t want to be launched into space. I want to keep my feet firmly on the ground. I’m not done with this planet yet.
