Why the 1969 moon landing still inspires space explorers today

Fifty years after humans first stepped on the moon during the Apollo 11 mission, NASA has created a goal of landing the first woman and next man on the moon's South Pole by 2024. NASA has dubbed this path back to the moon Artemis, after Apollo's twin sister from Greek mythology. But why should we return to the moon? Many experts feel that it's necessary and overdue, especially as the desire to land humans on Mars and push deeper into the solar system continues.

How “Crazy Rich Asians” Made Me Feel Powerful About Money

My feelings about money generally range from guilt for splurging to anxiety about not having enough. But last week, I confidently stepped into the box office and bought two tickets to “Crazy Rich Asians” – a romantic comedy starring a majority Asian cast. More surprising, the leading actors are both Asian: Constance Wu (“Fresh Off The Boat”) is Taiwanese-American and Henry Golding identifies as British-Malaysian. Despite the odds, “Crazy Rich Asians” was #1 at the box office, making $35 million in its opening weekend Aug. 15-19. This exceeded industry expectations of $25 million in sales according to CNN Money.  Why is this such a big deal? Why not save the money and wait to watch until it’s on Netflix? Because the movie industry needs to know its outlier choice to choose a diverse cast is worth it. Your opinion doesn’t matter to Hollywood if you solely watch movies on a streaming service.

I don’t have to make six figures in my career to live alone, I can do that now with some smart saving and lifestyle compromises.
