I'm not going to write any kind of comprehensive post on the anniversary of the moon landings, because there's enough of that elsewhere, but I think a nice addendum to the celebrations can be found in this article by Mars Rover big-wig and Planetary Society president Jim Bell.

Yes, the Apollo missions were a fantastic acheivemement. But complaining about the lack of effective human spaceflight since then ignores the massive sucess of our unmanned exploration of the solar system.
