The Fucking Moon

It's hard to believe that 40 years have passed since the Apollo 11 moon landing took place (well, actually, yesterday was the 40th anniversary of the beginning of that voyage - the actual landing occurred a few days later). As noted elsewhere, memories of the televised image of the various moon landings from the late 1960s and early 1970s make up my earliest memories. I may be skeptical of human-led missions of this sort at this juncture, but all the same will make note of the accomplishment. It was certainly symbolic of a time when anything seemed possible.
