On July 20, 1969, astronaut Armstrong said that his first step onto the moon was a giant leap for humanity. Nobody could have foreseen how right he was. The history that followed includes satellite communication for everyone and satellite imagery day and night, as much as revolutions and new relations between East and West, including those that emerged in architecture and urbanism, as well as new historiographies of art and architecture written and taught at universities. – Dan C.
