This week marks the 44th anniverary of the Apollo 11 moon landing. This historic event, enabled by the worlds finest engineers, took us further than we had ever been, and inspired so many of us to think about what is possible. The science and technology that enabled this pursuit might seem quaint by today's standards, but it was the discipline of engineering that made it work. That discipline is timeless and what we can bring is improved tools to help engineers to do their jobs with greater efficiency and capability.
This week also had another related milestone. Jeff Bezos announced that his team had recovered one of the Apollo 11 engines at the bottom of the Atlantic Ocean. This 1st stage of the incredibly powerful Saturn V rocket had not been seen since 1969. It took some amazing engineering to locate this wreckage and it was only this past week when it was positively identified as belonging to the Apollo 11 mission.
There are few limits to what dedicated engineers can achieve....especially with the right tools!
