It was on this date in 1969 that Armstrong and Aldrin walked on the moon. I was five. I remember watching it on TV. I remain inspired. And I remain disappointed that we haven’t done more. This video from the exquisite Sagan Series is a profound reminder of what it was like to dream such dreams:

“The greater danger for most of us is not that our aim it too high and we miss it, but that it’s too low and we reach it.”

-Michelangelo
