40 years, now what?

Four decades ago, man landed on the moon and anything seemed possible. A look at NASA's Lunar Exploration Timeline shows a total of 6 crewed landings on the moon.

Guess what? They all occurred before I was born.

As exciting as I find space travel--and I really do think it's awesome--I'm disappointed that we haven't gone further in my lifetime.

  1. I was thinking the same thing. My husband and I are sad that space will not be explored as deeply as we hope in our generation.

  2. Yeah, today was only 216th space walk in US history. For four decades. Such a small number and so few people to have experienced being in space for all those years.
