This year marks the 50th anniversary of Neil Armstrong’s walk on the moon, one of humankind’s greatest technological achievements. When first imagined, putting a man on the moon (and bringing him safely back to Earth) was a bold goal that pushed organizational and technical capacities to their limits. Beyond provoking discussions about what destinations might follow the moon, this accomplishment has also posed a question central to science and innovation: How can we put man on the Moon but remain unable to address poverty, inequality and other of the most pressing challenges here on Earth?
