I saw this live when it happened. It saddens me that I will never see another man's foot set face on another planetary body within my lifetime. We had the universe ahead of us in 1969... and now? Nothing. We can't even get to orbit nowdays without hitching a ride with the Russians on the same old-school rockets they were firing into orbit in 1968...
