Okay, gotta admit, this one made me laugh.

We've reached Pluto today!

I remember Voyager speeding past Neptune when I was a little kid, first time anyone had ever seen Neptune in detail. Here we are again!
Nasa's New Horizons spacecraft has made the first visit to Pluto, approaching within 12,500km of the icy world.

This could be the equivalent of the development of the rocket engine. Moreso even as far as how much it would affect our lives.

These would be perfect for James Bond to use in a Moonraker reboot.

Watched Star Trek reruns all the time as a kid in the late 80s and early 90s and it was my favorite show. My mom and dad would take me to the movies as they released and it was always the greatest thing ever.

Leonard, through his character Spock, taught me that no matter how dire the situation, there's always a calm, logical way to approach it. Made an impact on me as a child and stayed with me as I grew up.

It's 66 degrees in Houston at the end of April. Amazing.

And here's a photo of why. It was 88 before this thing arrived.

Pedro is something else indeed! I'm glad you enjoyed the song so much, Nikolas!  :D

That awful moment when reality catches up with Star Trek TOS.

QUI AUDET ADIPISCITUR – Who dares, wins.
I like writing, aviation, space, science, history, paleontology, and gaming. Sometimes I fix computers and also build them. Other times I like to drive cars fast around a track, or shoot holes in targets on a range, or explore nature, or read a good book on the sofa. I'm usually happiest when I'm learning something, and thus am a voracious consumer of information. My inner engineer loves to find out how things work, and I've torn down and rebuilt many things just to see what makes them tick.

I am an INTJ according to Myers-Briggs.

I don't post specific details of myself for the general internet to see. The job and training are an in-joke for friends. If you want to know more about who I am and what I do than I've already made available, you'll need to be old-fashioned and get to know me, or just ask.

Basic Information
If you've got the time, make sure and take the $90 Level 9 Tour at some point and see behind the scenes at NASA. It's a whole other experience from just the regular museum or the tram tour. I've taken several people on Level 9 tours and not a single one of them hasn't enjoyed themselves tremendously.

HMNS is the most I've enjoyed a museum of any type and at any location, ever. If you live in Houston or are a visiting tourist, I highly recommend paying the museum a visit. It's right up there with NASA as far as "things in Houston you absolutely cannot miss."
