It surely was an amazing day. A day which significance and importance will not reoccur so soon - if it will reoccur at all. The magic of the moment which fascinated the people back then, the pause button which was 'pushed by god' will be harder to reestablish, harder to push again next time, when mankind makes its way to mars, for example. Today, I think, we are used to technical stuff, we are used to hear about new improvements, new inventions, to hear about crossing borders of imagination. We are told about the history of the universe and the origins of mankind on National Geographics, or hear about new developments in experimental physics in the news. The Large Hadron Collider opens new dimensions for experiments and our understanding of materia and existance (and still hasn't destroyed the world ;P), the big bang, and all that. People have witnessed the unmanned mars missions on TV or over the internet. If we now make it to the mars, and really put a foot on it - it will be just another stepstone, an expected milestone on the road of technical evolution. It may be more than just a news headline, it may be something really big.. alright. But it will never be the same like 1969. That moment back then, these words, which are known by almost everyone on this planet, they really meant something. This was exactly what these words beared: "to boldly go where no man has gone before". And, you're right, Wil: It's really almost impossible to tell which moment had been more profound, for this combination was unique, and everyone who witnessed it should treasure it. What do find a little disturbing: Even here in these comments, the theory of the moon hoax was mentioned. It was not a fake. Period. We went there. Perion. Read this. Period. (--> Cheers..!
