Time just made Elon Musk Man of the Year.  IMHO it is well deserved.  We wouldn’t be in space like we are if it wasn’t for him.  An example. (post in memory of Mike Nofsinger)

While I am generally wary of Chinese ambitions in space, I have to say that this is a cool example of cooperation and an indication of where we could go with a less oppressive Chinese government.

China is serious about space.  We need to get serious too.  Thank God for Elon Musk. ( post in memory of Mike Nofsinger, who would be pulling his hair out over this, if he had any left. 🙂  )
