As Jim Lovell put it:
From now on we'll live in a world where man has walked on the Moon. It's not a miracle, we just decided to go.
There seems to be this perception that space travel is this incredible thing. It is awesome for sure, but it is fully within our grasp to do with as we please. One of my favourite arguments against the conspiracy theorists goes: if NASA were willing to fake the Moon landing, they would have done something else by now.
Let's reach for the stars again!
