mars rover

I am still a space booster. I remember playing space capsule in and around my father’s car while i listened to the broadcasts from the mercury spacecraft on the car radio. now we send a car to mars.

it is a great shame that we have let our space program drift into obscurity. I was watching “2001” with Maria last night, filled with sorrow that our vision of what we could and should do in space shrunk from the space station, the lunar base and the mission to jupiter with an artifically intelligent computer aboard by 2001 shown in the film to the orbiting trailer park we have now.

I often think that if there is a ufo alien conspiracy, its purpose is to keep us out of the galaxy by thwarting our efforts in space at every turn (including inserting negative messages about space travel into our media or our sleeping minds). I guess I wouldn’t want us moving into the neighborhood either.

This was mostly for the good. He now lives in Athens, Greece, where he is content.
