Is it just me or was the 40year anniversary more celebrated then the 50th one today by the media?
then again, I could be wrong. It's still just 11:00 AM for me
You're not wrong, at least as far as I can tell (and I kinda limit my exposure to mainstream media for my own sanity's sake).
Thanks, in no small part to SpaceX, There's a lot more public optimism, not to mention actual technical development now then there was even 10 years ago. Perhaps this has something to do with it, a "yeah, we heard the message 10 years ago and look how far we've come in response" kinda thing. Also, as much as I hate to say it, Space exploration/space technology isn't as mainstream or sought after as it once was.
or maybe I'm just talking out of my *** :shrug:
