Well. That's good news. But then, I'll be dead by then. So, what to do? It was my dream as a child growing up in the 1950's, that one day I would visit Mars. And then, we believed that was absolutely possible. We believed in our country, and in our superior economy and technology. Things aren't quite like that, now. Bu...more
Soviet space shots were never announced until after-the-fact. Many unspoken failures; some quite horrible. All ape-nauts from the U.S. space program, returned safely to Earth, and lived on to pass of old age. The non-military portion of American space program has always been very public. And that's the difference. Trut...more
Very. There is some suggestion that a female cosmonaut burned to death in space. People forget that the U.S. flew a space plane in the transitional period between the 50's and 60's. I believe that the U.S. was on a planned program of sending Humans into near space and then, beyond. Cannot explain the shock that America...more
And it is quite probable that Humans were lost in space, too. Yes, I'm old enough to remember those days very well. And to believe that the Soviets lost a couple, or so, Human lives isn't unlikely at all. They reported successes only, and loudly so. A couple of Italians believed that they overheard a radio conversation...more
Our current plans for space do not include the ISS as a major part of the bigger picture. Current plans for NASA are for space exploration to move beyond low Earth orbit (e.g. the ISS), and out into the planets. Most especially asteroids. Asteroids are made of materials that could fuel missions to Mars and the moons of...more
not a regular: It depends on which version of The Bible that you read. In The Oxford Edition, it reads "rich man," or something close to that. I'm not a Bible blabber. All means the same thing. And yes, rich can go to Heaven (or whatever) but cannot take it with them = make a will and be generous.
et al: I'm well awa...more
That lifestyle isn't uniquely Buddhist. Although I respect Buddhism, it was Jesus Christ whom stated, "It is easier for a rich man to pass through the eye of a needle, than to enter the Kingdom of Heaven." And he was correct in that.
But wealth has been the embarrassment of over-achievers for millennia. And we cann...more
