Thirty six years ago today Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. Nobody's been back since 1972. Sure, there's been a lot going on back on Earth since then, but isn't it a shame that this astonishing accomplishment now represents a dead end? Wouldn't "Moon Day" be a good idea for a holiday?

Funny thing about the moon-- for all of human history we've looked up at it. We sent men to walk on it-- maybe one of the greatest scientific accomplishments in history. Today, when we happen to see the moon it's almost like a surprise. We are cut off from nature just as we are cut off from our own history, I think. And I think that's a shame. Look up tonight. If you are old enough, remember what it felt like 36 years ago. (Boing Boing provided the Google Moon link. By all means zoom in.)
