JPL Open House 2012

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.

Splash Down!

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.

A New Age in Space Exploration

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?
