The President of the United States, Donald Trump, wants to create a new branch ￼_of the military with equal but separate powers with the air-force. He calls it "Space Force." I don't think this sounds like a good idea. Are we now going to militarize space? The Internet is already producing thousands of images to... Continue Reading →
Well, now that the President is taking away rights from humans who are from alien countries, I’d think it would be worse for an alien coming from another planet. I suspect they would lock the alien up and study it and you’d never hear another word.
It already is being used for military purposes right now as in spy satellites. Even very recently SpaceX was tasked to launch a U.S. spy satellite into orbit but it exploded and the satellite didn’t make it. In 1984 a Titan 34D rocket launched the KH-9 and KH-11 satellites for “reconnaissance,” and the DSP-2-6R satellite for missile detection. The list just starts there and goes... Continue Reading →
In one of the first "Presidential" things our President has done since he took office, Trump seems to be on the verge of having a summit with the leader of North Korea, Kim Jong-un, and I have to give Trump credit for doing that. We were seriously concerned with losing Hawaii or Los Angeles with... Continue Reading →
Sitting at work during "turnout" we were being lectured about whatever they happen to be stressing this month. I whispered to someone at my table "Okay, I'm going to take copious notes on this." Then I paused and added, "In case you don't know, copious means 'a lot'." Someone said, "Why didn't you just say that... Continue Reading →

There’s been a shift in tone from the U.S. Department of Defense, and it has some in Congress downright spooked.
“It’s time to take Trump seriously as he keeps hinting, over and over, that he wants to go to war with North Korea,” tweeted Sen. Chris Murphy, a Democrat from Connecticut. “Many of us have begun to hear whispers of more serious war talk in and near the White House. ‘Calm before the storm’ comment sent chills. Timing of Corker’s comments, referencing possibility of World War III, might not be accidental.”

Murphy’s statements are terrifying when one considers the temperament of the…

Why is SpaceX focusing on rockets and not on the space shuttle? Well, for one, the Space Shuttle was retired, so why would SpaceX focus on a non-existent program? The Space Shuttle did a lot but was also the most deadly of all of NASA’s manned space flights. More people died on the Shuttles than... Continue Reading →
