The guys on The Ticket had an interesting segment yesterday in which they were talking about the movie “Sneakers” and how at the time the movie was released, that technology looked amazing and how if we watch the film now, we kind of laugh at it. It shall be interesting to see movies 20 years from now and seeing if we laugh at the technology. And even if we don’t focus on movies, it will be interesting to see how outdated the iPhone will look 20 years from now, or how things like Facebook and BagOfNothing will be nothing but a cultural reference.

I caught a little bit of an Apollo 17 special on PBS last night. While on the moon, the lunar rover got damaged, and an astronaut was actually able to unroll and tear duct tape in his space suit to repair the rover. And yes, I do remember how it was used on Apollo 13.
While on the moon, Eugene Cernan, the last man on the moon, gave his daughter a most amazing present, he wrote her initials on the surface were it will stay basically for eternity.
