Space

Well, while I wait here at my desk for this huge scene to load I figured I could submit another entry to this new fangled blog thing that I got myself into. I am really linking it. It’s fun and while it’s quite possible that nobody out side my circle of friends and family may read it I still find it worthwhile. (My Mom sent me an email about how she enjoys it which brought a big smile to me face, thanks Mom!) I doubt however that I will update it with the frequency I have been lately, but who knows I may just keep it up for some time. I guess we’ll just have to wait and see…

So I read on the BBC news website this morning that China successfully launched a manned spacecraft into space for the second time! Congratulations to the people of China, you must feel really proud! You should, you are only the third county in history to send to a man into space on your own! I know I was so excited when I heard NASA is planning on returning to the moon by 2020. That’s right a man on the moon again, IN MY LIFETIME!!! And what’s cooler than just going to the moon again is that the missions are taking place as preparations to launch a manned mission to Mars!!All this techie stuff makes gets me so excited. :0)

Actually, the 2020 mission to the moon will be the first real one. Cuz we all know the one landing 40 years ago was staged. It was a bad comp that gave it away. In short, our generation is the best ever.
