I was in my teenage years during NASA's explosive development. And, it wasn't just about science and technology but teamwork: They not only pulled together one of the greatest scientific teams ever in the history of the world but united the nation in shared enthusiasm as well as the rest of the world -- because their stated goal was to advance scientific discovery for all of mankind. And they did just that.
They did the right things for the right reasons. Yes, it was prompted by competition with the Russians -- but the methods, goals and objectives were not nationalistic. They were global: It culminated and was summarized in just a few short words: "One step for man...."
I don't think any fiction or fantasy can every top that reality and, for me, kind of sacrilegious to try.Rewriting history and putting Oprah on the moon - just to depressing.
