The website homepage for the travel magazine Hidden Compass features a manifesto of sorts. Editors Sabine Bergmann and Sivani Babu explain, in a piece titled “The Age of Audacity,” how they grew up pretending to be astronauts at space camp and launching rockets in their backyards, thrilled by possibility in the wake of the Space Race.
“We want it back,” they write. “We want to live in a world where the names of astronauts, explorers, scientists and inventors roll off our tongues as easily as the names of the Kardashians. We’re willing to bet that we’re not alone.”
