I want my warp drivePosted Monday, December 10, 2012, at 2:54 PM
I remember as a little kid watching Star Trek, Star Wars, Doctor Who and many other sci-fi shows as a child and I remember the technology they were using always fascinating me. They had touch screens, and mobile communication devices, and they could travel the cosmos in hour long increments.
Today I have a touch screen computer, a mobile communication device, but I still can't travel the cosmos and be back in time to have lunch with my boss. Hmmm...where is my warp drive?
With Apple spewing out new way for us to listen to music or a newer model of a tablet every six months, why don't we have a faster way of exploring the biggest thing we see every day... our universe?
An article recently done by Emi Kolawole for the Washington Post, brought up the priorities of NASA aren't quite clear as we were lead to believe. President Obama had brought up that we would have a manned mission to an asteroid by 2025, but due to some significant cutbacks in budgets it seems that our progress to the stars might be cut short.
NASA though has given us the exploration of MARS and the discovery of planets very similar to our Earth. It's not manned missions to the outer cosmos, but its still better then nothing.
Even though we might be not making it to the stars as quickly as we might like to. I myself will still dream of a day were traveling the stars on any given day isn't just science fiction.

Every morning I start my day with a cup of coffee, catching up on the news, and trying not to hurt myself before 10 am (I'm a klutz and usually end up stubbing my toe or something of the sorts in the morning...or really anytime of the day). Hence the new blog coffee notes. Well, I should probably start with a little background on myself.

Interesting Facts: Coffee snob, reader, writer, enjoy good music, and somewhat of a workaholic. Oh, and I also like to think I'm funny.
What I try to do with my more casual writing is to insert witty comments into things that are happening into today's society. Sometimes I'm funny, most times just some really bad jokes that make people shake their head.
I look forward to providing Putnam County with news and my own brand of humor in the future. Keep an eye out, I'll keep posting."Not all those who wander are lost." JRR Tolkien
