Yesterday was the fiftieth anniversary of the first moon landing. As bittersweet as it is that it’s been almost as long since the last of our six moon landings finished in 1972, there’s never been a better time to be a space fanatic. Elon Musk’s work at SpaceX is currently driving the space race as commercial space flight looms ever closer with the first commercial spaceflight set for 2021.
At the same time, President Trump and China’s space agency CNSA have discussed restarting manned missions to the moon and subsequently to Mars. As alien as the idea may seem, Moon and Mars colonization could happen in the not so distant future.
Joyless - Idiots - New - York - Times
Contrary to the joyless idiots writing at the New York Times, the moon landing wasn’t some poor expression of white male privilege or anti-Soviet paranoia. It was humanity’s greatest scientific accomplishment. We should honor the bravery and accomplishment that Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins achieved by landing on the moon for the first time.
I know a lot of conservative moviegoers were dissatisfied with last year’s First Man, a movie that to a degree recontextualized humanity’s greatest accomplishment as something not uniquely American. Conservatives interested in celebrating the anniversary who are frustrated with that may find something more fulfilling in the recent documentary Apollo 11.
Documentary - CNN - Films - Clock - Day
This excellent documentary distributed by CNN films (proving that even a broken clock is right twice a day) is one of the few films released so far in 2019 that’s actually been worth seeking out in theaters.
