"If only there were evil people out there insidiously committing evil deeds and it was only necessary to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them.  But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being, and who among us is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart?"  This was written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn, famous for his books on Stalinist Russia.  I ran across this quote in a book by Jack Kornfield called "After the Ecstasy, the Laundry. I don't often read such books, but I have to wonder if this quote isn't familiar to +Denis Wallez  #inspiration

Orion Passes Key NASA Flight Review – “GO” for Maiden Test Flight on Dec. 4

After a decade of hard work, numerous twists and turns, and ups and downs, NASA’s new Orion crew vehicle is finally, and officially, marching towards its maiden blastoff in less than two week's time.

The Orion spacecraft cleared one of the final hurdles to its first launch when top managers from NASA and Lockheed Martin successfully completed a key review of the vehicle's systems ahead of the looming Dec. 4 flight test.

Orion passed the Flight Readiness Review (FRR) on Thursday, Nov. 20, and officials announced that the spacecraft is GO for proceeding on the road to launch.

How NASA Plans to Land Humans on Mars

http://bit.ly/11zfZcV

On the surface, NASA's humans to Mars plans seem vague and disjointed. But that's because the agency is playing the long game. Right now, it may be the only game they can play.

NASA has also released a brand-new video that describes why the icy moon's vast sea might just be the perfect place to find life beyond Earth.

This IS a must watch.  (But if you bore easily, you might want to skip the first 6 minutes.)
