Hard to imagine it has been 50 years, so much has happened in the Space programme since, Apollo, Skylab, ASTP, Shuttle, ISS, International cooperation, Chinese emergence into human flight. I wonder what the next generation will look back at on the 100th anniversary, will we have moved on any further? will we have returned to the Moon, stepped on Mars?

That newsreel seems like it's out of the 1940's lol. But just think-just a few years later (7?) a man was on the moon! That seems impossible............What an amazing feat of drive and technology. How can we now stand still?

Well in terms of manned flight, nowhere beyond Earth orbit in the past 40 years (Apollo 17, 1972).
