Side-step or Back-step?
"One large step for man, one giant leap for mankind..." Neil Armstong was not politically correct, I resent it, and believe he meant human-kind. See the Girl's Blog describing her quest to be an Astronaut at http://damarisbsarria.blogspot.com/ ... Brave woman! I salute U....
...The Space shuttle sails into orbit once more (yesterday), and as I previously predicted, odd pieces of shielding went flying off... Let's all pray they make it home in one piece this time!
I really do hope they find a way to build long-range, space-worthy vessels soon, so our crazy, egotistical race can terrorize the empty nether regions ... (quick before our species has finished off all the best parts of this world) ... I'd like to see more private rich people waste more funds on innovating new space vehicles, like the ones in Speilberg and Lucas films, or the Enterprise... At least humans are currently masters of entertainment, if nothing else!
I'd bet if aliens were watching our broadcasting out there somewhere, they'd think all that movie stuff was real, and maybe it would get us in trouble, like in Galaxy Quest... Well, you alien planet viewers, I assure you if U don't see it flying about out there, our cloaking devices are NOTenabled, the ships are NOT really out there yet, but we human-kind do all aspire to build and ride in them one day!
