Opening the Next Frontier
by Anthony Tate

 

Part 1: The Frontier Spirit

America loves its legends. George Washington in Valley Forge. The Wild West. World War II. The Man on the Moon.

But lately, it seems the legends have stopped.

Sure, we have the Internet to play with now, and computers are changing the world in ways we can scarcely grasp as of yet. The Soviet Union is no more, and despite our current travails with terrorism, a certain comfortable familiarity has us in its grip.

Where is the next legend? Where is the next frontier? Or are we just going to go comfortably off into retirement?

If the 'entertainments' of the kids these days are any indication, no way.

Extreme sports, fun little things like 'base jumping' and other diversions indicate that the next generation of Americans are harkening back to their roots in a big way. America is ready for the next challenge, refreshed, revitalized, and shaking off old fears and inhibitions.

But what could have caused our recent doldrums?

Why have we not gone back to deep space, that logical 'Final Frontier,' for so many years after Apollo? I believe it was a confluence of several factors, most of which have now passed, that caused us to huddle close to the bosom of Mother Earth for these past decades.
