Being a Better Geek: Reflections on SpaceX Launch

Posted on 18 May 2012 by VinnieAve

Tomorrow the first unmanned cargo rocket will be leaving earth and going to the ISS. This major event and reading Foundation have made me wonder where we’re going in the year, 10 years, 1000 years. Right now, it seems we’ve abandoned our future like the haughty empire. I would like to think not, I would like to think there are still a few people out there who are trying to keep mankind on track to permanent exploration of both the world beyond our cosmic shore and the world around us, below us and within us. I personally don’t think that we’re being actively guided toward a rebuilding of our human empire.

I would like to leave this short post with the idea that the way to solve our problems is not to hide in the past but to think and innovate and plan.

I leave you with this music video from Symphony of Science. Just remember a still more glorious dawn awaits.
