Another week gone by! I’m looking forward to seeing the launch of the new Orion rocket during the next, intended to take us beyond even the Moon, perhaps to Mars and even further out! It brings back the days from 1969 to the very early 1970s during the Apollo Moon landings I saw on television in an auditorium in school as a kid. We’ve not gone back since, but maybe someday we’ll dream again, and live those dreams among the stars!

I’m bringing back the Weekly Gnuz & Lynx Roundup next week while I try out some new ways of bookmarking via Evernote, and this Sunday shall see the monthly return of the Indra’s Pearls: the Vision of Felix Klein chapter reviews on the my site, the Impudent Algorithm.

Posting this week except for this Thursday was a bit slow, so I’ve a lot of catching up to do when scheduling entries. We’ll see. Stay well, stay brilliant as the stars, or in the Kai’Siri…
