A new era in health care?

Christian Science Committee on Publication for Northern California “The Airbus A380 and the future of health care” PaloAltoPatch.com. August 15, 2011.

The other day a good friend of mine posted a picture of an Airbus A380 taking off from SFO [San Francisco Airport]on his Facebook page. Call me odd, but in a way this image reminded me of the future of health care in America and, for that matter, around the world.

I’ll get to health care in a minute. First, a word about the A380.

For those of you unfamiliar with this remarkable feat of engineering, the A380 is the world’s largest passenger plane. With nearly 50 percent more floor space than its next largest competitor—the Boeing 747—it can carry between 525 and 853 passengers up to 9,400 miles at a cruising speed of 560 miles per hour. A hundred, 50, even 25 years ago few, if any, would have thought this possible.
