May 22nd 2012 will be remembered as a triumphant day for the SpaceX space program. SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket successfully escaped the atmosphere and entered orbit today. A huge first for this privately funded space program. Among its payload (primarily supplies for the International Space Station) we’re the ashes of the late James Doohan who played Scotty in the original “Star Trek” series. So this week I suggest you watch one of the original films or episodes. And while doing so, consider the implications of this new era of space flight.
What will you be watching?
