Apollo 8 was the first manned voyage to achieve a velocity sufficient to allow escape from the gravitational field of planet Earth; the first to enter the gravitational field of another celestial body; the first to escape from the gravitational field of another celestial body; and the first manned voyage to return to planet Earth from another celestial body.
We've thrown away a generation. 40 years ago we put men on the moon, and they'll all be dead before another man lands there. And that man will be Chinese.
How about soil mechanics, meteoroids, seismic, heat flow, lunar ranging, magnetic fields, and solar wind experiments?
It may look like some empty gesture
To go all that way just to come back,
But don't offer me a place out in cyberspace
'Cause where in the hell's that at?
Now that the space race is over,
It's been and it's gone,
And I'll never get to the moon.
Because the space race is over,
And I can't help but think
That we're all just going nowhere ...
