Endeavour, Always

Birds don’t fly as high.
Airplanes don’t go as fast.
The Statue of Liberty weighs less.
No species other than human can even comprehend what is going on, nor could any human just a millennium ago.
The launch of a rocket bound for space is an event that inspires awe and challenges description.
