How did you invent it? Have you had many, or mainly stayed with the same one? What was the inspiration behind yours? Do you theme your profiles/signatures to match? (Mine was inspired by affinity for the beautiful world of fungi, Toad and Toadette from Nintendo, and the time my mother played a Super Mario game for the first time and gleefully screamed “HERE, MUSHY, MUSHY!” while attempting to crush those poor Goombas.)
The newest Mars rover, "Curiosity," is now reportedly just hours away from landing on Mars has landed on the surface of Mars!I thought we should take the time to soak in the fact that our technology has advanced so much in the past 50, almost 60 years since the first US Moon landing.What do you guys think there is in store for space exploration? Where do you think we're headed (both literally and figuratively)?I was saddened by the dismissal of the space shuttle program, but am in equal amounts delighted at the privatization of space travel. It'll be a great opportunity for people who can afford it, and soon, I hope to see organizations that can help anyone hitch a ride to space for a few hours.But I was also delighted by the dawn of a new era of science--recently, the Higgs boson was discovered (and confirmed), yet the journey to define the laws of all things is not ending, as the transition is slowly turning towards dark matter, antimatter, and quantum science.I'm amazed at where the world is going and I'm glad to live in a generation where all these crazy and awesome discoveries are being made. What are your thoughts?-SK
