Evidence of water, An invitation to colonise??..

One small step for man, a Giant leap for the mankind.. I kept pondering over the remarkable statement, realizing that it has indeed come true. 40 yrs, since man stepped into the moon.

The tiny molecules of water open the gates for research. Scientists are feeling ‘over the moon’. Why would nt they? With this comes a plethora of possibilities. Come to think of it, split the molecule , you get hydrogen for rocket fuel and oxygen for sustaining life there. Not to mention it’s a lot more easier there to launch rockets with the escape velocity being so less. Also , comes understanding of the universe. No matter how it is formed, through the comets or chemical reactions, it is creating furore of excitement . State -of-the- art rocket science will get a boost.

It may not be like lakes or oceans. But its Water!! With water comes Man, with Man comes the thousand thoughts and the thoughts are never ending. Be it’ For’ or ‘Against’. Its true that the search for survival options, propels the mankind to build the extreme technology and its kind. But there is more to the discovery than the science of it. The mysteries of the cosmic world are far more profound than to be revealed merely to fulfill human needs. Lets hope we build a space station on moon and not a luxury resort :-)

Just 'Hang in there '

When things go wrong
as they sometimes will,
When the road you are trudging
seems all up hill,
When funds are low
and the debts are high,
And you want to smile
but you have to sigh,
When care is pressing you down a bit,
Rest, if you must... but dont you quit !!
- An amazing piece. Its so easy to wear a frown, but how hard is it to smile when things dont seem right?! Have you ever tried ? Its not easy to be strong, but you are a winner at the end of the day if you just din't give up and you could just 'Hang in there'..
The very word takes me to a world of surrealism. Thoughts kept pouring in.. and I began to channelise them. My first write-up, and why not begin with my first love ?
I started loving everything and anything about the sky. Just when I was watching this documentary , which went on to explain about the stars, universe and the hidden secrets.. someone asked me what you want to be? Pat came the reply..an Astronaut !! ( Later got modified to Aerospace engineer which sounds more complex and technical for that matter!). whats this about the countless stars that fascinate me? And why am I so obsessed with the dark night sky ? Is there some dark energy guiding me? how I wish it was true.. !!
I gazed at the stars, the more I did, the farther they appeared. They all seemed to be going backward, backward into the deeper realms of space with their livid lights. As a child I wondered if I could go on joining up ladders and how many I would need ! (now this does not seem to be just a frenzied thought with the concept of space elevator popping up !!). Fact or fiction, the stars just attract you.
As calm they appear to be, I wonder what chaos may be happening inside them. The celerity with which they move, yet seeming to be super stationary. An abyss of paradoxes, contradicting their appearances.
Still when I look at them, there is a feeling strongly untold. The dark and the deeper space they extend to be or the final Blackhole they all seem to end in, they say reach up to me, aim high.
And the next time I look at them, I know I dont need ladders, but just the dreams and the imagination to touch them !!
