Watching India's Chandrayaan-3 moon landing . . .


. . . live, was exhilarating.


Not only did my own optimism rise, as the lander decelerated toward slower and slower controlled descent velocities — televised views of India's mission control headquarters showed how many smart humans it takes to pull this kind of accomplishment off.



The moral? — A triumph for humankind


Now, we eagerly await discoveries that will result from the successful landing. For elderly me, these circumstances refreshingly simulate youth's eagerness.


Thank you, India.
