Microwave Missile Control, 1960

Moon Landing, 1960

Crane Explores Moon, 1960

Your basic space exploration story. First, while hidden at your secret camouflaged log cabin base, you launch your space missile with your microwave oven. Then you land on the the moon. Then you bring in the heavy construction equipment. Perhaps exploration & development always go hand in hand. I tend to think of it as ontological imperialism. What is a four-year-old child anyway? An ontological imperialist / desiring machine - or a victim transfixed by photons & radiations & perturbations? And what about dark matter - what's that about?
