the future 40 years ago

Arthur C. Clarke and Stanley Kubrick released a view of the future 40 years ago today...

You might want to read the intriguing article at the NASA web site.

While we do not have a spinning space station with artificial gravity, we have a complex station in orbit, under construction but operating 24/7 with international partners.

We're heading back to the Moon... We'll not likely find a monolithic beacon. But we're preparing for living on a body other than Earth. We continue to search for life in the solar system.

Our computers today do not exhibit intelligence. But they sure seem crazy some times!
