NASA Chief to Congress: ‘Don’t Make Us Hitch Rides With Russia’ 

My favorite quote from the article:

“Space travel is complex, but this choice is simple: Do we invest in ourselves — in our businesses, our ingenuity, our people — or do we choose instead to send our tax-dollars to Russia?”

Captain Archer Said it Best

I know this is fiction, but whoever put these words together was awesome.

We are all explorers, driven to know what’s over the horizon, what’s beyond our own shores. And yet, the more I’ve experienced, the more I’ve learned that no matter how far we travel, or how fast we get there, the most profound discoveries are not necessarily beyond that next star. They’re within us, woven into the threads that bind us, all of us, to each other.

Zachary Quinto defends his controversial HIV comments

This goes in line a bit with a commentary I made some time ago about my concern that though there have been awesome strides made about combating and preventing HIV, it seem that there has been some complacency creeping in.   These concerns are in no way about shaming any group of people, but that this may give too much sense of security.  I feel people still need to remain vigilant, careful, and wise about what they do.

Actor Zachary Quinto has responded to the backlash he received regarding his comments towards gay men, PrEp and HIV prevention.

What the…?

Betsy Layne High School in rural Kentucky this year had a two-page yearbook spread that featured all of the seniors on the boys basketball team. Except, one senior was left out of the tribute: Dalton Maldonado, the team’s starting point guard who came out publicly as gay a couple months ago.
