12/11/1972: Apollo 17 lands on the moon.
Apollo 17 is (so far) our last manned mission to the moon. There were other Apollo missions planned, but with the Space Race won and the American people focused on Vietnam, public interest (and therefore funding) really wasn’t going towards the space program.
Apollo 17 also set some records, as well as being one of the first NASA missions to not exclusively use military test pilots (or even pilots at all) by including a geologist, Harrison Schmitt.
Just as Apollo 11 led with some astonishing speech, so did Apollo 17 end with one:
…I’m on the surface; and, as I take man’s last step from the surface, back home for some time to come - but we believe not too long into the future - I’d like to just [say] what I believe history will record. That America’s challenge of today has forged man’s destiny of tomorrow. And, as we leave the Moon at Taurus-Littrow, we leave as we came and, God willing, as we shall return, with peace and hope for all mankind.
“Godspeed the crew of Apollo 17.”
Systemax has decided to seize further enhancement update on SAI and shift towards SAI2 development.
Because SAI would abandon some of the planned features, SAI2 will be offered free for previous license owner. However SAI will still be updated/supported for bugs and issues.

Actually if you are working with people who are dyslexic please use comic sans. The kerning and lack of serifs, combined with the spacing and clarity of each letter really helps them. This was great until the font elitism.
! huh. I honestly dod not know that bit about Comic Sans.
this is referring to graphic design, mostly. it is good to use comic sans for wordy things because heck yeah it does help dyslexic individuals. but in graphic design, where you’re only gonna have a few words displayed—that last bit does reign pretty true.
