EARTH SPACE

October 23, 2013

SOURCES

Well I took a break from dreams of building a better space vehicle.  We don’t have to go far to get spacey.  Our best space fantasies have to be based on our earthly knowledge.  What we imagine of aliens is often based on human nature, which is all we know.  So examining the human condition may be part of preparing to venture into space.  We will probably be alone with human companions for the first part of our new frontier experience.

To examine humans in isolation Alaska may be a valid community.  Television offered a vision of such a community called “Northern Exposure”.  Every cast member had time to deviate from normal to abnormal behavior in various episodes.  At times they escaped into spiritual adventures, and occasionally even journeyed through time as science fiction often does.

Before we go to Mars we should visit the earth in all of its extremes.  I have been having some hot and cold climate experiences as part of my learning curve.  I also supported a book release by actor Darren Burrows who played Ed Chigliak in Northern Exposure.  As a reward some of us enjoyed a dinner party to talk over the production and story line of the show.

The VQ Hotel in Denver offered a fourteenth floor banquet room and some great finger food.  We enjoyed chatting with Darren and the host of the “Moosechick” fan page.  Sorry guys, my memory for names is pretty lame, and I was really busy getting that finger food all over the place!  I took pictures though, and you can find more information on these pages too:

“Moosechick” is on his left, and Darren is on her left…the other Darren that is.

I can’t pass the quiz on the rest of us though!
