Today, we are seeing history in the making as we return to outer space via NASA and SpaceX. I think it’s absolutely amazing how far technology has come. We went from rockets to a shuttle program and now we are back with highly sophisticated capsule and much improved rocket and boosters.
The lessons we learned from history show how innovative we can be. They come up with computerized menu instead of switches, space parts are recycled and 3D printed to use on future missions, race car seats for protection, and newer space suits. The best lesson learned is they’ve built an abort program for the capsule for the astronauts in case of malfunction or last minute emergency.
There is absolutely no stopping us from reaching the stars, the moon, Mars, or other planets. Space, the final frontier, for we have the technology to be smarter, stronger, faster, but are we any wiser? Let’s hope so! Yup, so proud to be an American for we build cool things again!
