Rusty Schweickart, Apollo Astronaut, and Asteroid Day and B612 co-founder, gave a moving speech this Asteroid Day about humanity 50 years after Apollo. 

“It wasn’t Neil Armstrong who could look back on Earth, but it was all of us. That was the significance of Apollo […] For the first time human eyes saw this incredible evolution that is earth life, not just human life, but all life on this planet,”
