We live in the future

“The best thing about the future is that it comes one day at a time.” – Abraham Lincoln

Today, we flew a probe 4 billion miles through space to land on a comet moving 40,000 miles per hour.

When we originally developed the name LunarLincoln for our company it was events like this one that inspired us. We’re explorers, we’re inquisitive, we’re resourceful. Humankind’s ability to see the future and plot its possibilities allows for organizations like the ESA to build and develop a space probe that will travel through the immensity of space for an entire decade in order to land on a comet – an undertaking that seems somewhat unreal and ridiculous to me. We not only attempted it, we were successful.

Here at LunarLincoln, we aren’t building incredibly complex space probes and rockets – but we are innovating. We are playing with the edges of developing technology. We are excited for what our fellow engineers are creating and hope to do the same ourselves (albeit on a smaller scale).

Things may come to those who wait, but only the things left by those who hustle. – Abraham Lincoln.

Keep hustling. Keep building. Keep exploring.
