|Celebration at Mission Contol.|
Note that the banner says "Task Accomplished"
but no day follows the month in the date.
The supreme achievement of the Apollo missions - and the NASA space program in general; and, in fact, the entire global enterprise of space - is a singularity symbolizing all of the very many achievements the we create every day. We deliver these to each other in exchange and all parties benefit incrementally. We take that for granted. But every now and then, it helps to ponder and reflect on the depth and complexity of our time spent at work.
