Historical Spaceflight

wie es eigentlich gewesen

33 notes

There is something about spaceflight that captivates us as human beings. The fact that we have been bound to this blue rock being hurled around a star for thousands of years seems like a non-issue, especially when we take to the stars, be it on a robotic or human mission. We see something amazing happen. Something that originated from this Earth is no longer bound to it. When one sees a human-made ship leave Earth, we are amazed at not only the power and the sound and the sight, but that we as a species have come so far as to visit other worlds.
