Man on the Moon 40 Years

40 years today Apollo 11 touched down on the moon, though there are still quite a lot of conspiracy theories surrounding whether it happened. The only concern for me is that the space ship looked like something I made out of tinfoil as a child. It does raise an eyebrow, though also makes the achievement all the more amazing. NASA has continued to surpass itself, yet it will be the words "one small step for man, one giant leap for man kind" that they will be synonymous with.

What could we do now that would have the same impact? At a rare public reunion of the Apollo 11 crew they've called for a manned Mission to Mars, that sounds pretty close.
