50 years after sputnik, 2 generations worth of hopes and dreams and fantasies is kaput, shit, un-bid-on detritus on ebay. As Burroughs once intoned, "the last and greatest betrayal of the last and greatest of human dreams." And yet it was not us, it was only time that betrayed.

This makes me sad, like nothing else did today.
