WOW! I just got back from a day at JPL. I’ve heard from some of the volunteer’s that this year’s was the biggest event yet. I will have some pictures as soon as I get them all into one place. I had to use a variety of device (three in fact) to take all the pictures that I could. I was only able to get about half way through all the exhibits and missed some of the ones that I wanted to see due to the amount of people. It was like going to Disney or Magic Mountain. The stuff I did get to enjoy was fantastic. A big thank you to all the JPL volunteers that put this event on, you were outstanding!
I’ll have a more detailed report for you once I have rested awhile. It was 99 degrees F when I got back in my car. Note to self, next year come earlier and wear a hat.
Love, love, loved this event. If you ever get the chance I would plan on spending both days viewing all the exhibits. Some people we talked to in line were coming back for their third trip to view the exhibits. I must admit that I was tempted on a couple to get back in line and go around again.
Next year promises to be even better! I can’t wait.
The SpaceX Dragon capsule has successfully landed back on Earth. This is the first commercial space vehicle to leave Earth and re-enter safely. A very bright future for commercial space exploration. Now to brush up on the legal ramifications that this is going to entail.

Congratulations to the folks over at SpaceX for their successful l Falcon 9 rocket launch. Later, the spacecraft will launch a Dragon spacecraft to orbit and (hopefully) dock with the International Space Station (ISS). SpaceX will be the first commercial company in history to attempt to send a spacecraft to the ISS. Can the images from 2001: A Space Odessy where a Pan American World Airways operated Orion III spacecraft with inflight service transports people to space on a regular basis be far away. I think Richard Branson already has plans.
It is a great time for new frontiers. I look forward to it. Do you, or do you think that only governments should fly the friendly space skys?
