Wow! So many space-related happenings in only one year. And 1964 was 57 years ago – which means this was happening before most of the people currently on Planet Earth had been born. Just imagine where the human race would be now if that same pace of activity had continued over the following half century!
It is also hard to miss on the old movie that the people making things happen were – how to say this? – rather non-diverse. Yet they managed to achieve wonders all the same.
