Is space travel next for NASA?


Have you ever wondered what life would be like in space? I’m not talking about those living on the International Space Station or as it’s known as the “ISS.” I’m actually talking about living IN SPACE aboard a ship in the far reaches of the universe and the zillions of galaxies that surround our solar system as we know it – the Milky Way.

I recently read an article not to long ago about a NASA idea of sending astronauts into space to explore the possibilities of long term space exploration without possibility of ever returning home to earth.

The idea sums up, an idea of sorts, as it does in the movie “2001: a space odyssey.”

Long term space travel has always been an interest to the human space race on earth. Everyone on earth seems to wonder what kind of life harbors outside of our planet, except for those that live on the ISS.

It’s a scary thought to live the remaining life of one’s lifetime searching the far reaches of space and visiting other worlds in our solar system and beyond. But, with the point of no return or possibility of ever returning home to earth means, one would have to be suited enough to take on the rigors of the job of exploring the heavens and the lingering cosmos.

The other day, I was watching a National Geographic Channel program about the possibility that humans are part alien and part human, perhaps, part humanoid as well? Now, don’t get me started with all kinds of wacky duck tales of “The Terminator” with ol’ Arnold and the story of John and Sara Connor’s.

Perhaps, it might be better of if those with feat for the late Gene Rodenberry’s “Star Trek,” might fit the billing a little along the lines with “Battlestar Galactica” as well.

I often wonder if we’re up for such a galactic of human space flight into the far reaches of space and beyond? It would take such courage and mind of someone to perform the variety of duty and honor to explore the fast images of space and our known galaxy – “The Milky Way.”

I wonder what that would mean to Muddler and Scully? If we were to go far and beyond the dreams ever imagined in today’s world? It could be so astounding than the video feed that was beamed to NASA, while the skip wrecked Castaways of the U.S. Minnow were stranded on a deserted island, with Gilligan, the Skipper, Mary Anne, Ginger and the Howell’s.

My late grandfather always told me, that the far deep reaches of space held one of the most important answers of life. It wasn’t only the heaven’s he said. “It was the creations of mankind that held the truth of the world and the birth of the human race.”

I remember the summer nights as a child we would lay out in the grass in front of the house at our family’s ranch and he would tell me stories about the universe. I had not forgotten what the world was made of during his story telling, each and every summer I had visited.

My boyhood days were yielded with memories of clear nights and tons of stars, which could be seen arisen high above the heavens on any clear night. I often wondered, if the stars were calling my name aloud to become what I am today? A writer. A blogger. And, a totally insane idiot that still dwells for the love of “Smarties” candy rolls.

It has become a priceless pastime to think the heavens have a strong meaning for space travel in todays world. But, the dangers of leaving earth and never returning home is a scary thought to digest among the human race.

One boy’s dream of living in space could become a reality in the near future of NASA or the world space programs merge together on one common and acceptable goal – peace and cooperation is the key ingredient to make amends and adventures in space travel a wondering reality of life.

Rodenberry’s, “Star Trek” gave us the looks of the Starship Enterprise and her crew as they traveled through space exploring the many reaches of space and planets they came in contact with during their travels.

“Battlestar Galactica” gave us what the human race and machines would endure for the safety of the human race, while the Cylons gave us the urge to see the that the “Terminator” was out to set the world to a extreme extinction of the human race.

They were only the perils of fictions in their story telling. Human space flight along with space exploration it can become a humane as possible. But, without a way home to earth, it makes the mission even more dangerous than the battle between humans and the cylons itself.

What do you believe in your own mind about the admission of one’s mission to the deep reaches of space and space exploration as a whole.

Perhaps – we may even find the real “Battlestar Galactica” or the starship “Enterprise” itself? I’m curious to what we will find in the far reaches of the universe and what could scientific finds would find us here on earth.

It’s only a matter of time before we know the truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth.

We’re only human in our own mind.
