A decade later there were Americans walking on the moon, a scientific achievement that no civilization before or since has been able to achieve.
Today, the United States has another educational crisis. In every study that's been done comparing the United States to other countries in science and math, we finish in the middle of the pack. I referenced one of them in a blog post last week - the 2007 TIMSS Study. We have fallen so far that we either cannot develop the technology to send our own astronauts into space, or we have lost the motivation. Either way, the country that was built on scientific achievement, innovation, and invention is stagnating.
And what is the response? How are we trying to improve education and technology to overcome this latest crisis?

Instead of pooling the collective will of science, industry, government, and education to become great, we are floundering.
In the 1950's and 1960's we made a commitment to education, innovation, and greatness. We put a man on the moon in a decade.
If we keep on our current path, where will we be in a decade?
