FOWC with Fandango: Radar


This is Hubble, a space telescope, once launched in 1990 and still up there watching what is developing in our cosmos. He will probably still be there when I am no longer. I took the photo from an app I have called SkyView where you can see all the various objects floating above. All those little white dots in the background mean something: perhaps just stars, but many are space trash. Rocket remainders floating around. Do not forget, every time a rocket is launched part of it breaks off as is no longer needed for the transport and joins the space junkyard. You would be surprised what is revolving over our heads. Of course there are also planets and moons, but they are the big ones and not man made. No wonder you need radar when travelling even the rockets have to avoid the obstacles on their route.

  1. Some of that space rubble is really valuable. It’s made of gold and platinum and stuff like that. That is one of the reasons we are working so hard to get men back up there, to grab stuff and bring it back. I worked on a project when I was doing military writing and we were talking about going out and getting ANTIMATTER. Apparently, there really IS antimatter. We just need to figure out how to get some. What we’ll DO with it — well — that’s another issue.
