So it begins April 5, 2012

Posted by Mark Flavin in General.

The purpose of this blog is multi-facited but with one clear goal: elucidating space travel and every related area of human endeavor in the cosmos. I have followed space flight since I was very young when I saw Sputnik fly over my house in Seattle. That epoch moment has been categorized as the beginning of the “space race” by politicians and other fearful people, but for me it was the beginning of a journey.

Those early days held so much promise with most of it yet to be fulfilled. I have seen brilliance and buffoonery, excellence and tragedy, hope and despair yet I have never given up on the promise of human exploration and habitation of the high frontier. This forum is for the discussion of all topics related to our need to go into space.

I will try to keep my messages positive and forward looking but I will never let a opportunity to comment on poor leadership or malfeasance of the public officials intrusted with our tax dollars to explore on behalf of the citizens of America and the world in general. There is so much exciting movement in the aerospace industry both private & public at this time in our history that there are plenty of opportunities to post about great new technologies, exciting discoveries and advancements. That is what I plan on doing. I am as enthusiastic today as I was standing on the lawn in front of my house, a small boy gazing in wonder at the man made moon streaking overhead; and so it begins.
