Just a pause for a moment if you will to reflect on the events of 40 years ago today: Man landing. On the moon. The MOON. 40 years after the fact a repeat of a similar mission sounds not only daunting, but an unbelievably expensive undertaking, in the hundreds of Billions of dollars. And to think that that iPhone in your pocket has scads more computing power than the Apollo 11 spacecraft did 40 years ago. Chew on that.
