Forty-One Years Ago Today

Today is the 41st Anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing, when humans walked on another astronomical world for the very first time in history.

For me, this represents the most significant achievement of our often-troubled species; an extraordinarily courageous journey toward a peaceful, scientific exploration of our universe. I've always felt that this is our ultimate destiny.

If we can put aside our petty differences, and manage to avoid destroying ourselves, the planet Mars, the giant moon Titan, and more than a billion other solar systems are continuing to beckon to us.

I hope we are wise enough to answer that call.
