Today's moon shot

In my catch-up with some FastCompany articles, I was please to read that the latest US budget sees an increase in funding for NASA.

I think our generation needs new 'moon shot' to spur forward scientific and technical achievements. It's also worth noting that such a program isn't just for the US - every nation can play a part just as many did with the International Space Station.

Sadly, the punctuation point to that feeling was reading that March 2nd marked Concorde's 40th anniversary. Concorde's final flight brought out Jeremy Clarkson's poignant side: "This is one small step for man, but one giant leap backwards for mankind."
