It's the fiftieth anniversary of Sputnick.
Remember when space was cool? When Astronauts were cool? Do kids still like Astronauts? Do we still go into space? Are we exploring anything? (i know we are, but it just doesn't FEEL like it, y'know?)
Where are my permanent space stations shaped like giant wheels? Where the fuck are my moon cities??!! I WANT THE FUCKING JETPACK THAT I WAS PROMISED!!!
KEEP WATCHING THE SKIES!!
Happy 50th to Sputnik and to going where no one had gone before.
