They splashed down under parachutes.

  1. I consider fusion a wild card. There are private ventures in unprecedented numbers. The govt fav, the Tokamak, is an economic dead end. Don't be surprised to see an oil funded or Goldman Sachs funded concept beat ITER to the punch….for example

  2. I'm 58, but you're right about fusion. Even if I live until 90, I don't expect it will have made much impact by then.

    I will say, I remember well the days before personal computers, cell phones, and the internet. And when televisions only received 4 stations – ABC, CBS, NBC, and PBS. Cars didn't have seatbelts, and I could work my way around a car engine without much effort.

    Maybe Musk will do me a solid and have 4-hour civilian flights to anywhere in the world by 2045.

    A man can still dream…

  3. Yeah, it does kind of suck having grown up during the Apollo program, then watching progress on a whole bunch of things just stall for half a century.

  4. All my Boyhood dreams are starting to come true. Instantaneous audio and video communication using a watch, space tourism in its infancy, self-driving cars within 5 to 7 years, and flying cars within 15 years. Personal robots within 15 years. It is a good time to be alive
