Technologized

Dear reader,

America is becoming “technologized.” I can now check the news with one click of a button instead of waiting for the news to air on TV. Technology changed the face of politics, communication, and entertainment. It changed the way of life. Our restless hands are now always on the screen of a smartphone.

Voyager 1The one area of technology that I am most interested in is that of space exploration. NASA’s Voyager 1, launched on September 5, 1977, reached interstellar space on August 25, 2012. Something that humans have made is now nearly 12 billion miles away from us. It’s hard to realize how much this number is without truly seeing it.

This song (even though the lyrics are a bit cynical) and video, to me, really captures “how far we’ve come.” It covers a broader topic than what this blog post covers, but I really like it.

We’ve had some many technological breakthroughs in such a short period of time. I wonder what’s next on mankind’s to-do list.

Yours Truly,

Elise
