If you want to talk technology, look back to 1969 and think how incredible it was for the US to actually land a man on the Moon with what little technology available to them at the time. It was back when calculations were made and problems solved on a slide rule and rudimentary computers. That technology was enough to get Apollo 11 to the Moon and back safely 45 years ago today.
