Happy Birthday NASA

Buzz AldrinThe National Aeronautics and Space Administration began operation on October 1, 1958. The Washington Post has an article on its history which includes a photo gallery of some NASA highlights.

If we could travel back to 1958 and tell the people who were founding the organization what it would accomplish in the next 50 years, do you think they’d be pleased or disappointed? We made it to the Moon! Yay! But…in 2008 we’re sort of maybe thinking about going back to the Moon. Um…yay?

I wonder what it’ll accomplish in the next 50 years.
