You need to upgrade your Flash Player The theme of this blog is not only and obviously space, but in particular “terrestrial worlds”, places that tend to have surfaces on which one could walk or at least attach oneself to. These places sometimes also have other earth-like familiar features such as atmospheres, weather, volcanos, geysers and perhaps, we are finding, even exotic oceans, rivers or lakes that are not necessarily made of familiar materials we are used to here at home. The second theme is imagery. Occasionally I do some retouching of images when needed if an image is incomplete or sometimes “dirty” or noisy. I will attempt to correct image shortcomings based upon other images or well-accepted presumed attributes. When this is done, notes will be offered as to what was added, why and sometimes how it was done. This way no one should ever wonder if something they are looking at is real or photoshop.

My Sci-Fi Bookcover Past II

Mars Underground

Scored another one. This time it is hi-res and I think this came out around 1996. I also just happened to get a copy of “Mars Underground” (unrelated) on DVD just yesterday which is about Zubrin’s “Mars Direct” concept of getting men (and women!) on Mars. I am thinking perhaps now this may finally be embraced as NASA’s Mars 2.0 plan going forward?

    I don’t know much about Zubrin, but “Mars Underground” seemed to depict him as passionate to the point of maniacal. Certainly we could use a lot more passion to get things really rolling, but it seems like the only things rolling are eyes when Zubrin starts in on Mars Direct.

    Having said that, Mars Direct DOES make a ton more sense than the bloated NASA propositions. We’ll see.

    i plan on doing a post on the documentary… i just haven’t had the time to put my thoughts to computer. zubrin is exactly the kind of guy it takes to lead such a charge. people like him all through history have made a mark by sheer determinism. eventually… when you are right… people come around.
