40 years ago today, something momentous happened. By now, I think everyone reading this knows, it’s the anniversary of the launch of the first manned spaceflight to the moon. In the four decades since, we’ve only returned a handful of times, but it marks one of the most powerful dividing lines in human history. Before that, we were a species confined to the narrow spaces of one single world. After, we have become a spacefaring people. So go out and lookm at the moon tonight. Remember how far we’ve come and dream about how much farther we’ll go.
