Man on the Moon!

What could a New Zealand space programme look like?

As we mark the fiftieth anniversary of man landing on the moon Dr Nick Long reflects on what that’s meant for New Zealand and considers the space ‘gold rush’ ahead. 

I’m just old enough to remember watching astronauts live on a black and white TV as they walked on the moon.

As I recall, the two thoughts on everyone’s minds back then were, “Isn’t this incredible” followed by, “What are we going to get out of this?”
