Hello... Excuse me... Is there anyone there? We use to use PTT ... Do I still have to push to talk? Yes! Thank you! Could you please tell me where to find the Oregano? Oregano! You know... the spice! I’m looking for the spices! Well now there’s no need to be snippy! This is Helen Garriott, I’m Richard Garriott’s mother. Who are you? Listen! I’ve been delivering meals to near earth orbit for nearly 30 years... I brought my famous home cooking up to Skylab and that was probably before you were born! Now my boys up here and I’m not going to let him go without a good hot meal from his mama! Excuse me! Do you know where they keep the spices or not? I’m sorry... I just don’t seem to understand you; say again? Oh, never mind. I found the oregano. Thank you anyway. Helen Garriott, signing off.
Human Appropriation of Net Primary ProductionOf Local Primary Production The costs of existence will rise!
The Future of Human Spaceflight Costs must and can drop! Now: ISS $100B/20y +>$2B/y + >$300M/p Soyuz: $150M = $300k fuel! Future: Cost to orbit <$10M/p? Commercial can handle LEO (with NASA help) Space X - Dragon will carry Cargo and Crew Scaled / Virgin- Suborbital Armadillo / Masten – Winning NASA challenges Blue Origin – Suborbital? Bigelow Aerospace – Space Stations Google Lunar X-Prize – Private Lunar Exploration! NASA can focus on Deep Space Exploration!
