Doodling our 'next giant leap'

Fifty years ago today, President John F. Kennedy presented a bold challenge to Congress: Send a man to the moon by the end of the decade. It seemed like a crazy idea at the time, but it became a reality on July 20, 1969, when Neil Armstrong became the first person to walk on the lunar surface, taking that “giant leap for mankind.”

 

In honor of Kennedy’s dream, iReport teamed up with GOOD magazine to solicit your visions for the next bordering-on-lunacy ideas for advancing our world. And in a departure from our typical iReport challenges, we asked you to draw your solutions for the world’s biggest problems.

 

We got lots of imaginative sketches, doodles and digital illustrations, ranging from missions to Mars and organ regeneration to whimsical notions such as hovering wheelchairs and a seat-less bicycle.

 

Check out GOOD’s gallery of the highlights, and see more submissions here.
