Astronauts!

Astronauts!

Lots of people have been trying to talk the problem of space flight to death. Space X is actually doing something about it. Right now, at 17:00 Central Daylight Time the final portion of the Demo 2 Mission to the ISS is getting ready to start up.

If everybody were like me, the streets would be empty and instead of stuffing ourselves with snacks while watching something pointless like the Super Bowl we’d all be scarfing down pizza rolls while watching the human species as it slowly hatches from its earthly egg.

I suggest you get off your dead ass and watch this space shit.

    The dream is still there, its just America (and much of the rest of the West) is too busy whipping themselves and naval gazing these days. Space should be something that is concentrated on and made into a national interest. Instead it is sidelined. Not enough profit in it or something. The West has lost its way.
