Today is July 20th, Moon Landing Day. Rockets to the Moon and real spaceships in orbit overhead (if ,abet the last one). Medical miracles abound, even if the inner workings of life are a lot more complicated than we ever imagined. Cosmology is turning out to be one of those barber shop mirror experiences where reflections and Grand Theories recede into infinity. This may disappoint some who wanted simple answer, but I love it.
I never dreamed that I would see the last rocket ship, but there it is. Sure the Eastern Tigers will send up capsules and small payloads, but no genuine rocket ships are not in anyone's CAD file folder. (Drawing Board to old folks) The mini shuttle, poorly hidden by the NSA and CIA, doesn't count because it won't carry people, but is dandy for carrying spy satellites into orbit.
Remember; The gate is down.
