Back then, even on grainy Black and White TV's we all watched every launch. Even our school would allow us to watch launches on TV in the Auditorium.
Now, it's like "Oh the Russians launched another group" ho hum.
We need something more exciting than "growing lettuce in space".
Maybe we could start on collecting asteroids for metal and water? I don't know, but something?
