I know it’s not the same thing as a real trip into space, but since I’ve never been able to achieve my dream of becoming an astronaut or “to boldly go where no one has gone before” it’s the next best thing. So yes, here it is: your chance to get on the flight with me. NASA is sponsoring free virtual boarding passes on the Orion EFT-1 flight, with a launch window scheduled around Dec. 4-6. So sign up now; it’s free! http://mars.nasa.gov/participate/send-your-name/orion-first-flight/
I wish I knew. I’m a professional software engineer by day, and even I can’t figure out what happened. Somehow, my site content management system lost its mind and I couldn’t change themes or do anything. I was forced to start over, which really stings since I’d put a lot of work into my site. Oh well, easy come, easy go. Right? So please be patient while I revamp and I’ll have things back up and running as quickly as possible. Domo arigato!
