In 65 years, we've gone from the Wright brothers...

In 65 years, we've gone from the Wright brothers' first glider to putting a man on the moon.

If it weren't for the FAA still using technology from July 29, 1969, and the oil industry holding back progress on alternative sources of energy, we might also have had mass-market flying cars 49 years after landing on Moon.

I think this is not a great picture of progress as it is comparing 2 different technologies. (here comparing aerodynamics and the jet engine to solid rocket boosters and space flight). You might as well compare powered flight to a cell phone or the internet.

Maybe better to say 'We've went from the Wright brothers to the Jumbo Jet in 65 years'. . . .

It's an extension of the same. You can't get a rocket into space without aerodynamics and jet engines. Rocket boosters ARE a type of jet engine, and space flight IS a type of aerodynamics and aeronautics. The first A in NASA stands for aeronautics.

A rocket is another method of propulsion so the comparison is fine. The Wright brothers created a glider and an airplane. The space flights also fly through the air and fly through space.
