It’s a bit sad and a bit amazing – how quickly something becomes old news. Less than a year ago, the world marveled at the landing of a space rocket back on Earth.

In the 1960’s and early 70’s, every launch into space was a historic event and a major news story. For an hour or so, everything was placed on hold and we watched the news coverage of each launch. To a lesser extent was the coverage of the Shuttle program.

2015 and 2016 brought us science fiction – landing a rocket. It’s been in movies for decades. Finally it was proven possible. January of 2027 and it isn’t event talked about on the news.

Wow, how things have changed.
