If the US can get back to space exploration, I can update my blog

I’ve been wanting to update this site for a long time, but laziness and Destiny have been keeping that from happening.

This morning I woke up and via a tweet was reminded the good ol’ USofA was just minutes away from returning to space.  Punched a link just in time to watch the launch of Orion, the country’s new stab at putting people on Mars.  This mission is more about testing these new rockets and other stuff and this particular launch is un-manned. If you’re interested in learning more, this article in Air & Space is a good starting point.

Anyway, for reasons I can’t fully explain, seeing that pushed me to decide I was going to try and start posting here again…On the regular.

Let’s see if my commitment is equal to all those smart space engineers.
