Mr. Fish,The “spirit” of Apollo was not just exploration and adventure, although there was plenty of that. It was however mostly a product of the cold war. The Soviet Union was out there exploring space, Sputnik, Zenit, and Vostok and the US could not let the Soviet Union gain all of that prestige alone. It is difficult in this day when the US is the sole Po2;hyper-p2wer” to remember what it was like when the USSR was the other super-power. There are of course enormous military possibilities that controlling space entailed. It is not spirit we lack.
