Transcript: The New Space Age | Space

MS. O’HEARN: Good afternoon, everyone, and welcome to the Washington Post. I am Kathy O’Hearn, the executive producer here at Washington Post Live, and we are thrilled that you’re all here.

But I want to start with a question to everyone. How many of you in this room remember seeing this headline in July of 1969? “The eagle has landed.” And how many of you remember seeing this moment play out on TVs across the country?

MS. O’HEARN: That’s good, a good number of hands. We appreciate it.

This, to many, was a landmark moment. A man had landed on the Moon. It was an historic triumph for the United States, and it captivated the world. As President Nixon said to Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin at the time, “For every American, this has to be the proudest day of our lives, and for one priceless moment in the whole history of man, the people on this Earth are truly one.” That sense of unity, of awe, and of wonderment inspired a generation of devoted fans for space exploration.

Now, nearly 55 years later, we are on the precipice of history being made once again. The Artemis program aims to establish a more permanent presence on the Moon, and the upcoming Artemis II mission will be the first step toward deeper space exploration. I am thrilled, as the whole building is thrilled, to get to play host to the four astronauts that will be aboard that mission around the Moon next fall.
