Delusional Space

Is the sky really the limit? Standing before an ocean of the infinitely unknown, it is human nature to be stirred as the greatest of mysteries are unveiled and reminded of our fragile world tucked away in a forgotten corner of space and time. As claimed by Lee De Forest in 1957, “Man will never reach the moon, regardless of all future scientific advances.” The Apollo 11 landing of 1969 proved the opposite. With an understanding of what had previously been dismissed as impossible as now possible, a renewed hope enveloped the country. However, such promise overlooked the forces that sent man into space in the first place. The space race may be best defined by “That is one small step for man, one giant leap for America.” With the delusional motivation of discovery, space endeavors have resulted from war. The following submission represents both the DULL efforts of space programs in low Earth orbit as well as the potential in thinking outside the BOX despite geopolitical restraints.
