I hope I make it. Very exciting times we live in!

The young’uns will say, “60 years! What took so long??!!”

We went from the first manned flight to the moon in 65 years. A Mars landing should have started planning in 1970 or earlier once the moon was reached. Instead we decided to sink a tonne of dough in a reusable orbiter. We need to show more ambition.
