.@SWEtalk Great to see @SWE_President on @ecnonline #Engineering Live on our fascination with space
The 1960s was arguably the most fascinating time in the world of space. Sputnik had been launched just a few years prior and the entire decade ended with the first moon landing. So what happened? Despite surges in enthusiasm during the Mars Rover landing and flashes of obsession with superstar Astronauts on the ISS, that excitement has waned in generations born after the Space Race. In certain circles, the final frontier is revered as the next great Wild West, but it’s barely discussed by the general public. The big question is can future generations ever be as excited about space as past generations?
