This is sad. A true American (and World) Hero (and I almost never use the word)–lost in space.
Seems Neil Armstrong (and Cernan), first and last footprints on the moon, are holding on to the spacejunk of the past.
Armstrong doesn’t get it. He thinks “America First” should drive all explorations.
Maybe “being the first” to tramp around up there has gone to his head?
Aldrin gets it. Much greater, more creative vision.
Being second’s not so bad. . .
