Happy Space Race Day!

Published in Space

In deference to the title of this blog, my consulting company, and my profession – Happy Space Race Day! Today marks the 50th anniversary of the Sputnik launch – proving that we could achieve at least Low-Earth Orbit (and that it wasn’t full of scary space monsters)

Of course, besides very brief forays to nearby celestial bodies we have relegated ourselves to primary the same orbit we reached 50 years ago.

Here’s to hoping we have the vision and execution to go back to deeper space – both for knowledge and to spread ourselves into more than one basket. 🙂
