    A 'Moonshot' is basically an extremely ambitious attempt to do what you consider a momentous goal or near impossible feat. It stems from (you guessed it!) the time in the late 40s when people were discussing an attempt to go to the moon!

    Up until now, I've been fascinated by the word/concept of a moonshot solely due to the existence of X, what Alphabet (Google's parent company) calls their 'moonshot factory'. It is a highly secretive lab where they ideate, experiment, and work on projects that would be considered extremely out of the box. Some notable projects to come out of X which you may have heard of were Google Glass, Waymo, Project Loon and etc. If you'd like to read more about X, click here.

    I was absolutely elated to see OnePlus using moonshot as the leading word for their 9 Series Campaign. They used the word to embrace their then 'secret' partnership with Hasselblad, a company who were technically part of the origin story of moonshots. OnePlus is also seemingly using moonshot to describe to hype up their upcoming attempt to improve the camera array / software. So far I feel like the camera samples are living up to the hype but only time will tell if they are actually far superior to the past lineups.

    Enough about companies and their moonshots, use this thread to tell us about YOUR moonshot(s). It can be a past, present, or future example of attempts at your greatest, seemingly impossible goals.

    I'm really hoping this thread will act as a place to be inspired by the amazing community and everyone's efforts in growing through seeking discomfort by chasing your wildest ambitions.

    I don't set impossible goals, all my goals are quite within reach, but if I have to single one out, I'd say learning coding while still completing my medicine studies would be a Moonshot for me.
    Aww...adorable

    Apart from user of the year, the most active user, you deserve a "Husband of the year" award my friend. God bless the sweet couple.

    That's a reachable moon shot Adi. May you reach the height with ease.
