One Small Step – Open Item

Good morning. Today is the 20th of July and this is your Open Item.

On this day, 44 years ago, the United States of America took the next step in our history of exploration. 44 years ago today, we landed a man on the moon. Below is a part of the release from NASA on the importance of this day:

“On July 20, 1969, the human race accomplished its single greatest technological achievement of all time when a man first set foot on another celestial body.

Six hours after landing at 4:17 p.m. Eastern Standard Time (with less than 30 seconds fo fuel remaining), Neil A. Armstrong took the “Small Step” into our greater future when he stepped off the Lunar Module, named “Eagle,” onto the surface of the Moon, from which he could look up and see Earth in the heavens as no one had done before him.

He was shortly joined by “Buzz” Aldrin, and the two astronauts spent 21 hours on the lunar surface and returned 46 pounds of lunar rocks. Their liftoff from the surface of the moon was (partially) captured on a TV camera they left behind, and they successfully docked with Michael Collins, patiently orbiting the cold but no longer lifeless moon alone in the Command Module “Columbia.” – NASA

We need to embrace the space program once again. We need to become a species of exploration once again. We need to redouble our efforts to make space exploration a national passion.

In more recent news, we have gotten a lot of feedback from the piece our Managing Editor, Derek Pillie, wrote regarding the Indiana National Committeewoman position. Pillie has updated this post after receiving a call from Congressman Marlin Stutzman’s Chief of Staff.

    Voted for Twinkies (as a tweet and by eating a couple). It is interesting that they came back on the market the same week that bankruptcy and Detroit are in the news. This is what happens when bankruptcy happens to a product that has intrinsic value. Had GM or Chrysler been allowed to go through standard bankruptcy, we would still have GM and Chrysler cars today. It would just look different.
