It’s deeply saddening to me that the Concorde is no more, we lost a lot more than machines when the Concordes were retired, it was like losing the Space Shuttle or the Apollo space program. Now all we have are some dusty museum pieces created by geniuses in the ’60s who thought the future should be faster, higher, better and smarter than it turned out to be.
There is hope for the future though, men like Elon Musk and Richard Branson have picked up the extinguished torch, relit it and in so doing, have given us a reason to look at the stars again and dream.
