If We Can Do This, We Can Do Anything

We keep hearing "if we could put a man on the moon, we can solve our problems" or we need a "moon shot" scale intervention to save the environment. It's time to pack that 40 year old chestnut away, we don't need it any more.

If we can send a robot 422 million miles to land on Mars and get another orbiting robot to casually snap a picture of it descending, glowing in the dark, (a "speeding bullet photographed by another speeding bullet") we can do anything. ::Planetary Society via ::Boingboing
