Sputnik!

It’s amazing to think that the Space Age is 60 years old today, this being the 60th anniversary of the launching of Sputnik 1. Although it seems that nobody is thinking that much about outer space anymore, other than in science fiction movies and TV shows.

We seem to have shifted our gaze inward toward computer simulated possibilities, rather than outward toward the possibilities of the Universe itself. I’m not sure that this is a good thing.
