  1. It’s beyond amazing how far we’ve come in 50 years.

    When I was a kid in the 1950’s and 60’s I imagined what my grandparents felt about the progress that had been made at the time; how amazed they must have been.

    They weren’t alive to witness the real progress; humans landing on the Moon, visiting planets farther away from Earth than they could have imagined; telescopes bringing to us, the unimaginable expanses of the Universe; satellites bringing to us stereoscopic images of the sun.

    They weren’t alive to see, almost over night, transformations in human exploration and technology that would utterly baffle humanity when they were born – a decade before the Wright brothers made their first flight at Kittyhawk, NC.

    I can’t help but wonder; what would they would think today?

    1. First of all i like to thank you :).
      Sometimes i also wonder how far we are going through latest technologies.
      But i think that the present space technology is at same level as aircraft technology at the time of wright brothers.
      It is just a beginning , we will see more surprising missions in coming decades.
      Thanks for your support 🙂
