Bill Maher with Neil DeGrasse Tyson

I always hear that the moon landing was the last great thing America did. I think the last great thing it did was giving healthcare to thirty million people. - Bill Maher
He then went on to ask which was the "greater achievement." I'd say the two are different. Healthcare was accomplished just by enough people having the will to do it. Sign some things into law, bada-bing, bada-boom. But after we decided "let's go to the Moon!", someone had to figure out how to do it and then actually do it, which is insane. Two different things.
