Empty (Space!) Suits
To take your mind of the depressing news, here is an article on a wonderful coming exhibition of lovingly crafted space suits, some of which have been to the moon. I wish I could go and visit this. When I was a kid I dreamt of being an astronaut for a while...original it certainly was not, but that is a dream no longer common among kids, it's sad that nobody seems to have grand dreams of that sort anymore, they all want to be pop stars, and everyone yawns about a shuttle launch while drooling about a stupid Ipad. Hey, why should we go to mars while there is hunger in the world? - they say - but what they mean is "why should we go to mars if we can build some new sports stadiums instead?"
