Because of this trip, I haven't exactly been following space news much, but I hope to get back into the flow starting today.
I see the ISS is going through some repair work. Nothing like a "fix-it" job in orbit. Isn't it amazing what we can do these days?
A big ole' skydiving attempt looks to be coming soon. Now THAT would be one hell of a ride! Now just imagine trying this out of a Virgin Galactic ride...at apogee of course.
Celebration V. Star Wars, although sci-fi, was the catalyst that drove me and many others into the space industry. It's because of sci-fi that we develop sci-fact. Now the fun part is actually using our sci-fact to benefit humanity. It seems we're still kinda "stuck on stupid" with our global socioeconomic system that's rooted in the 17th century while it tries (and fails) to govern the 21st century. As goes our technical capability, so should go our systems of governance...forward and evolving to be better.
I guess that's a good quick summary of today. Remember, question the "unquestionable" and challenge the "unchallengeable". Only then do you truly progress.
