We are the music makers, and we are the dreamers of dreams. Since the dawn of consciousness, humanity has strived to reach those faint glimmers of light in the nights sky, to satisfy our curiosity, to know what we can find in the great encompassing dark. Few are the men and women that have taken the reins, and dared to go to those far away places that we can only dream of.
History is largely told as a chronicle of great people doing great things, but for most of us life is not made up of big moments, it's made of small moments. When Neil Armstrong uttered those all too famous words, and took his giant leap we all took part in a big moment, we all felt the pride in what we had achieved, finally dipping our toes into the ocean of the universe.
It is Neil deGrasse Tyson who said that "we stopped dreaming", that the end of the space exploration programme has taken something away from us. With the passing of the first man on the moon, I hope that we can return to dreaming, and maybe look toward tomorrow.
