Exponential progress and destruction

"In 1903 the Wright brothers flew for 59 seconds.

38 years later the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor.

28 years after that, we landed on the moon.

We went from gliding a few feet off the ground for less than a minute to launching rockets out of orbit, traveling for hundreds of thousands of miles, landing on the moon, and then returning, all within a single lifetime."
