In The Week, misunderstanding the moon landing.
In practical terms Apollo 11 was meaningless. To say that it represents the beginning of what will one day be the expansion of humanity's horizons into outer space seems to me not only unlikely but inhuman. "Human being," Heidegger said, "consists in dwelling and, indeed, dwelling in the sense of the stay of mortals on the Earth. But 'on the Earth' already means 'under the sky.'" This Earth is where the drama of human life will be played out.
