The Moar You Know

Most of America has given up on spaceflight. Me, I caught that bug as a kid and it's never gone away, not for a minute. That we ever cut NASA's budget is an utter outrage. Glad to see the private sector is finally stepping up and getting things done.

I'm impatient. I want to see us as least move out of LEO and go higher - we don't need to get to the moon yet, but being able to manually service a geosynchronous satellite would be a great goal for the next ten years.

My only regret is that I'm not going to get to see space for myself. I'm almost fifty. I've flown a plane without help exactly once. So I think I'm out of the running, even as a passenger. But so long as we're moving in the right direction - up and out - I'm content.

Have you ever considered getting into an ultralight? I was futzing around with a toy drone but these are waaaay more fun and I'm getting one this spring. You will have no regrets, crash landings aside.

Another relatively detailed look at space elevators with quite a few links to while away the snowfall. . . .
