The Crew of the Zavala gets interviewed at Space Center Houston.
A great interview on NPR this morning with Chris Hadfield.
Latest developments on Warp Drive here in Houston.
Now imagine a spaceport here at Ellington. Seems a logical spot for one.
It’s almost here and there will be a host of celebs here in Houston for the occasion. They have lined up Robert Picardo, Denise Crosby, Tracy Scoggins, Gil Gerard, and Marshall Teague and several others slated to be down at Space Center Houston. We are organizing an away mission.
It’s a great deal, only $11.56 for tickets. This is a substantial discount off the at the gate price of $22.95!
So, are we there yet?
This is a great article on Io9. I have a few thoughts on most “habitable zone” planets they discover. One, most are super earths. But then again, we are working with a technology that is just being developed. All we can really see are super earths. But I do wonder if we are the species to be attending the Federation conferences in the wheelchairs. However, if you think about it, most space faring civilizations would have to be able to achieve escape velocity from their own worlds before they can become “space faring” and if you live on a super earth, that could be problematic. Second issue would be in seeing that both Earth and Mars and possibly Venus are technically in our habitable zone here around Sol, maybe we need to work on that “habitable” zone definition as well.
I get the impression that the first one would cost this much, however, any after this would be considerably cheaper. Depending of course if we can figure out warp drive.
The rumors appear to be true. The Shuttlecraft Galileo is coming here to Houston to our own back yard at Space Center Houston.
