|from Georges Méliès 1902 film|
Le Voyage dans la lune (A Trip to the Moon)
Even today, it does, but to a lesser degree.
I remember watching the rocket launches from the late '60's/early '70's on history programs & watching the space shuttles launch on TV in awe of the hard work and smarts that it took to achieve what I saw happening.
One of the things it taught me was that science is wonderful.
This coming week marks the end of the space shuttle program.
