It would be neat to see Don Herbert (Mr. Wizard) in there too.

My recent visit to Mojave Air & Space Port

I had a chance to visit XCOR #Aerospace up in Mojave, and it was damn fascinating -- a next-gen spacecraft start-up. Their Lynx craft is going to go up to 328,000 feet altitude -- not space exactly, but you can almost touch it from there. And the Lynx will launch from a standard runway.  It's just amazing how aerospace is scaling these days. 

In fact, all of Mojave had an amazing maker vibe. It's like Silicon Valley might have felt in the sixties and seventies. People are just doing stuff. Instead of computers in those garages, there are spaceships. These aerospace engineers are going to build amazing things.

Thanks to Bryan and the team for having me over!  http://www.xcor.com/ #rockets #spacecraft

Well, technically 328,000 feet is space, because it's the definitional boundary. That's why the tail number for SpaceShipOne (also from Mojave Spaceport) was "N328KF".

I now declare that the rest of the day will be spent playing Big Band music as I work.

RIP music man, Glenn's probably waiting to get the big gig in the sky started.

This is a Kickstarter to help fund a project that an old, dear friend of mine is working on; to preserve the history of small Colorado towns before they vanish other than as a marking on a map. Nobody else I know would do something this ambitious, awesome and fantastic, and it's worth taking a look at funding it so her work can continue.

(Yes, I'm signal boosting the shit out of it, if you've seen me post this other places)
