Let's Explore Space (Friday Edition)

Personally I think we need more space exploration. We go into space to find answers to scientific questions, to broaden the scope of scientific knowledge, and search for the origins of life.

Unfortunately, science for the sake of science doesn't sell that many tickets. So here are a few humble suggestions on how to popularize space travel:


  1. Spacesuits are rocket fuel for your dating profile. No one looks fat in a spacesuit, it's just extra padding.
  2. Everyone likes Star Wars. Everyone likes The Hunger Games. Let's use the International Space Station for the ultimate reality show!
  3. Think of all the great Youtube videos you can make of kittens in a moon base.
  4. The next generations of rockets are sure to improve quality of life on Earth. Need I say more than 'Lift-off High-Espresso DeLuxe'?
  5. In space you can't hear the screams of fanatics cheering for the GOP war on women.

Hope you all have a great weekend.

I'm sure they'd be extra cute in the lower gravity.

I should do my new headshot in a space suit, then...

I'm not sure I know what you look like, but I'm certain a space suit would add to your coolness. Let's try a background of stars with a sliver of Saturnian rings :-)

Plus, if the US doesn't react, the Chinese are going to keep the moon and Mars...
