Giant steps are what you take, walking on the moon

Giant steps are what you take,
walking on the moon
I hope my legs don’t break
walking on the moon (The Police)

It was forty years ago today, that Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon. Apollo 11, was the first lunar landing, and the 5th Apollo manned mission. Think of the progress we have made since then:

  • satellites
  • satellite TV
  • GPS
  • satellite phone
  • space stations
  • probes to Mars
  • satellite mapping of the entire earth (think Google Earth)
