Here's a great video, using restored original footage, of the Apollo 17 flight to the moon - the last flight of the Apollo program. I remember this as it happened . . . the feelings of 'end of an era', the memories of the earlier Apollo flights, the wondering what would come next. Watch it in full-screen mode for best results.
At the time, we wondered whether our children (or at least our grandchildren) would be living on Mars or another planet. That dream has died in the bureaucratic, politically correct morass that NASA subsequently became . . . but who knows? Perhaps, one day, the dream may yet fly again.
