One small step...

40 years ago today man first walked on the moon. My mother hosted a moon landing party in our basement. We set up the 19" TV in the basement and everyone gathered around to watch the grainy pictures as Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin exited the lunar module and planted an American flag on the surface of the moon. Wasn't it an awesome event?

It's amazing how complacent we have become about space exploration. The shuttle was launched just last week and I bet most of the US wasn't even aware of the event.
