One Small Step for Man, One Giant Leap for Mankind

We celebrate the 50th anniversary of the moon landing tomorrow, I guess. The Google Doodle video is well worth a watch.

One thing Mike Collins said that struck me hard--he was the astronaut that remained in orbit while Neil and Buzz explored the moon--was that our cell phones today are more powerful than the computers they had in 1969.

It's amazing to think that. And, yet, there still isn't a cure for cancer or even the common cold.

While the current space program is still going strong and attempting to get humans to Mars, it's funny to consider that even with how far technology has come, it's been 50 years since a human has set foot on another heavenly body.

Have a great weekend!!
