Neil Armstrong is no longer with us.
One small step for a man, a great loss for mankind.
There is so much less love for the pioneers of our world than there should be. It worries me that Kim Kardashian usually gets more press coverage than the big scientific breakthroughs and it breaks my heart to know that in the time since Neil landed on the moon America’s famous spirit for innovation has largely been forgotten; the country now infamous for the denial of such fundamental sciences as evolution and climate.
The man on the moon is probably the single most iconic image in human history, but instead of following up with grander feats we’ve chosen to kill each other and stare at people who we put on a pedestal for no better reason than the size of their buttocks.
Come on world, show me that you’re better than this.
