You know, you can be as cynical as you like about the politics surrounding the space race (and you'd be right!) and there are certainly serious arguments as to why we just don't need manned spaceflight, but my inner space cadet can't help thinking "Fifty years, and we're still tooling around in low orbit?" Apart from the moon landings, of course, but they were a long time ago too...


Plus great big rockets are really cool! ;D

Hopefully, though, to strike a sickeningly utopian retro-sf note, when people look back in centuries to come the Cold War will seem like a curiosity and Gagarin and the other space pioneers will be remembered as great figures in human history. Hopefully.

Right, so its midnight on Xmas day, and I'm sitting up writing reaction posts about Doctor Who - isn't life marvellous? ;D

Okay, so you may have heard of this thing called The End of Time? Yeah, it was on before, it has some fella called Tennant in it. Yeah, I think he might be leaving the series or something. Nah, nothing exciting... What was it like, you say? Well...
