For Blondie

A very good friend of mine turned me on to TED talks, something I am astounded to say, completely passed me by in recent years.  I cannot thank him enough for the time I've spent on this site.  It is truly an engaging site and my head spins after just a talk, or two.  There are so many brilliant talks on this site that I've just decided not to mention the other three I just viewed and only suggest that if you ponder our fate as a species, have even a glimmer of interest in space, or often find hope in the resilience, determination and courage that is the human spirit, listen to what this man is going to attempt.  While I know that LL and Mr. Bud will love this talk, Blondie, I think you will find more than some cool ideas on the possible future of man in space and I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.  As I wrote my son tonight, what I wouldn't give to be 20 years younger and have something of value to offer this man and take a chance at joining him in his quest.   I give you Bill Stone on TED.

Excellent talk. At the risk of starting a cascade I would also suggest

Yep. Just watched Penelope over breakfast. She's got the right idea and what a day job:)
