I got up at 1:00 AM to watch the Artemis rocket launch this morning -- being old makes waking up in the middle of the night easy. The launch made me nostalgic. The mission that landed the first people on the moon – Apollo 11 – left earth on my 10th birthday. I got up four days later up in the middle of the night to watch the first walk on the moon, too. I wake up for these events because NASA and these flights are the best of us – and I am desperate to tap into their “exhaust” to draw inspiration and renew my faith in America.
