Remember When We Walked on the Moon?

It's kind of weird to think that before Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong set foot on the moon, the last soil their feet touched was Floridian. 

Today marks the 40th anniversary of the lunar landing. The moon walk happened the following the day. 

Meanwhile, here on Earth, we still haven't found an alternative to oil, ways to stem global warming, a cure for small things such as the common cold or big things such as HIV, or, at the very least, mass use of jet packs.
