Lift-off, Touch-down

I was in 4th grade and watched the first NASA manned Mercury launch from my classroom, and every other launch was just as much a special event all the way through the Gemini and Apollo programs.

Just because we can...

Remember JURASSIC PARK? Remember how they explained right up front that the dinosaurs were not actually the same as the originals, because their DNA was mixed with modern frog DNA? https://www.theguardian.com/science/2017/feb/16/woolly-mammoth-resurrection-scientists Is it really 'de-extinction'...

Hostile Takeover

Trump is, I suspect, beginning to realize that he is not CEO of a country, that the tactics of a hostile takeover are not going to work here.

Made in America

When I was a kid in the 1960s, it was the early years of the race to space, and there was such a push on for American students to excel, especially in the sciences!
