Today is the anniversary of the first manned Moonlanding.

 

According to several US-based engineering socieities, Apollo 11 was the top
engineering achievement of the 20th century.

 

Hats off to all who made this unprecdented event successful.

 

It should be noted that in the intervening 47 years, no other nation has
sent any humans to the Moon.

 

During the 1960s, there was a poster that was issued in the USSR that said,
"Land of the Soviets-Shore of the Universe!"

 

In hindsight, and perhaps in current sight, it should have instead read,
"Land of the Americans-Shore of the Universe!"
