On Apollo 11

History will remember the inhabitants of this century as the people who went from Kitty Hawk to the moon in 66 years, only to languish for the next 30 in low Earth orbit.  At the core of the risk-free society is a self-indulgent failure of nerve.
Buzz Aldrin, Apollo 11 astronaut

Aldrin is calling for a mission to Mars.

Watch the Apollo 11 re-enactment “live” (40 year delayed) at http://wechoosethemoon.org/.  Watch TV broadcasts (via YouTube) synchronized with that same 40-year delay: http://kottke.org/apollo-11/

Also, Howard Rheingold provides an insight into Institute of Noetic Sciences and its founder, astronaut Edgar Mitchell. (Note: four tweets: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4)
