It's been said that The universe is probably littered with the one-planet graves of cultures which made the sensible economic decision that there's no good reason to go into space--each discovered, studied, and remembered by the ones who made the irrational decision.

Well, today we take the first step to ensure that we are the ones who discover, not the ones who are discovered.

Get the hell out.

studebaker hoch: praxcelis

"Weeeeee'rrree OFF to see the WIZARD!"

"There's a dead witch under our descent stage, and everything's in color."

It really IS obscure.  And in this crowd, which surprises me.

With a single small step, mankind takes a great leap.
<deep breath>
Although named for the worst of man, the planet has now been visited in peace by mankind, for all of mankind.  And may this moment of exploration serve as a reminder that in unity and peace mankind can do far more than separately or in conflict.

Long before I saw Dune, there was an old SF movie in which the astronauts who land on Mars are attacked by giant worm like creatures in the Martian sand. I don't recall what is was called as I saw it when I was just a little kid.

[pre-written NASA statement]

And on a personal note - to Mrs. Betty Hickox, the self-important, overconfident and totally incompetent high school French teacher who told me I'd never amount to anything if I didn't stop reading voraciously on every subject and "get good at one thing", I say this:

Nanny-Nanny Boo-boo.

And Kate - think about it.  Ambulance chaser or astronaut?  You chose unwisely.
