Happy Thanksgiving and a Joyful Reminder That We Are Not Alone

I distinctly remember as a very young child, since I'm a twin and surrendered during my birth trauma, a vague, scary and almost overwhelming prenatal feeling of being part of something so vast and incomprehensible that I felt absolutely miniscule and tiny beyond description.

Astronaut Truths About Life on Planet Earth

Colonel Chris Hadfield has spent decades training as an astronaut and has logged nearly 4000 hours in space. During this time he has broken into a Space Station with a Swiss army knife, disposed of a live snake while piloting a plane, and been temporarily blinded while clinging to the exterior of an orbiting spacecraft. The secret to Col. Hadfield's success-and survival-is an unconventional philosophy he learned at NASA: prepare for the worst-and enjoy every moment of it.

Past, Present and Future of Human Space Flight

As promised, a conference report from Annapolis, or, more strictly, Maryland’s beautiful Eastern Shore! At least that’s where I was when I started writing this. If you’re looking for some great seafood I can heartily recommend the Fishermen’s Inn and Crab Deck on Main Street, Kent Narrows. I’ve never dined so close to the water. You can leave over and feed the ducks.

Voyager One's Interstellar Message to the Galaxy

As Voyager 1 escapes our star solar system and enters the uncharted black void of interstellar space, it carries a non-threatening message to the millions of solar neighbors in our Milky Way galaxy and thanks to Carl Sagan, it's a message of love, altruism and social cooperation which just so happens to be the driving force of evolution

Iran Launches Monkey Into Space

The Islamic Republic of Iran has sent a monkey into space on a suborbital flight and returned it to Earth safely.

Happy New Year From The International Space Station

The space station is a living example of International cooperation which has yet to be achieved on planet Earth ~ where America is still engaged in the longest war in US history in Afghanistan ~ but the human spirit cannot be quenched.

ISS Resupply Ship Explodes, Another Space Failure for Russia

Crew estimates existing supplies will last. 2.5 tons of fuel and key supplies were onboard at the time of the rocket failure 325 seconds into the flight.

The Eagle Has Landed

The eagle has landed ~ but it should also now be obvious that man’s quest to touch the face of god must eventually turn inward. The ultimate frontier is not space but understanding the journey of the heart and the true intent of love

The Eternal Message of Voyager 1

So now imagine, if you will, at some point of distant time ~ an Intergalactic spaceship retrieving a seemingly lost frozen space vehicle and cautiously examining its contents and coming across this strange gold-plated copper disc.
