Thinking about The Future — and thankful we are still here!

Good Morning, God!

So, last night I read that the Russians are planning a nuclear-propulsion rocket to use in space exploration — and will be designing a nuclear powered plant to be placed on the Moon or Mars. That’s not really a surprise. But, I also saw that the Canadians’ have a Space Agency! And they have just let a big contract for a new generation of Lunar Rovers. A Canadian Space Agency?

Meanwhile, we Americans are thinking maybe we will make one more shuttle run. I’m TORN, God, TORN! Part of me thinks: Is going into Space feeding the hungry? Another part thinks GET GOING America!

Here’s a DREAM, God! How about if we shipped all manufacturing to the MOON and kept the Earth CLEAN? Manufacturing done by Robots, of course. Hmm. I remember YEARS ago when I was at a party and talking about where to put nuclear waste. I joked that we should send it to the moon. And someone said, YES, WE ARE THINKING ABOUT THAT!

On our Planet, God, waste products are shared. Air pollution TRAVELS. Water pollution TRAVELS. I wonder if that would be true of waste materials in space? We already have a lot of old stuff orbiting around and around us. Could we leave waste on the moon without it eventually harming us?

Ah, now, God! I’m familiar with “unintended consequences” and aware that eager scientists plunge ahead. Actually, considering the Pandora’s BOXES we have opened in the last 70 years — I’m so thankful we are still here. IT’S YOUR HAND, GOD! YOUR HAND! Thank YOU!

    Margie, you are really into the space thing. Me too. I recently heard a top scientist talking about NASA and what is going on there. Space vs hunger in the world. His thoughts on the NASA image issue. How many kids grew up wanting to be a NHIA scientist, or a chemist for Dupont, or …. But how many wanted to be Astronauts, fly into space, and that spurs imagination and innovation, inventions, technology, etc all of which does apply to us and the hunger situation. He spoke of looking down and seeing all the problems we face here, but ignoring the asteroid that may be headed straight for us, and we don’t see it, and all is gone when we could have diverted it. I think God has called some us to be very involved in the earthly problems, and others to work on the universe problems that we can learn how to protect all of humanity from. It’s a tough question.
