Space. I can't help that I love it.
Today I listened to a broadcast of RadioLab, in which they did several quick audio essays about space.
Look, I know that it's pushing it a bit to say that the Constitution authorizes our government to spend my money on space exploration. But I love that we're doing some of it. The very last story in the one-hour show is about trying to get private companies to explore space.
The first one was about the meaning that, Ann Druyan, widow of Carl Sagan, puts into the golden record that she directed the production of, just before it was launched with Voyager. I have to admit, her story got to me.
It's a quick hour, divided up into short essays, if you'll give it a listen.
