At 9:56 PM today, Eastern Standard Time, forty-five years ago, Neil Armstrong first set foot on the lunar surface.
When times are hard, when the world seems filled with evil, hold that moment in your mind, when human feet first set foot on another world, and remember: together, there is nothing we cannot do.

Hi! Sorry for the slow posting. Things, hopefully interesting things, are in progress here, but are not yet ready for the light of day. Also, I'm writing my thesis, which obviously takes up a certain amount of time. In the meantime, you can satisfy your craving for my writing with a guest post I wrote at the blog ClarksonPunk: An Atompunk Manifesto.

“It's a den of noise
Filled with fidgety boys
Our home beneath the firmament
And I'm glad it's a phase
Just lasting two days
Rather than something that's permanent.”
On July 31st, 1959, two young parents and their three children entered an 8-foot-by-9-foot soundproof room in the basement of a laboratory at Princeton University. They stayed inside for the next fourteen days.[Ve][MN]
