    restless?

    Hello Everyone,

    What do you think is the meaning of restless in the following sentence?

    Over the next four years, Apollo taught us what it means to be human: in a word, restless. Curiosity is never satisfied, it merely finds new targets.Quite how quickly the shift can occur was learnt by Pete Conrad, the third man to walk on the Moon (and the first to fall over on it).


    Regards

    Sky

    I think in this case, the author is using the word to mean, "unable to sit still, unable to stay in one place, always twitching to get going, constantly shifting from place to place."
