Helmet For Sale

I hope everyone in Europe and within its footprint was able to enjoy the lunar eclipse. In Hawaii and the Pacific Rim we saw a red full Moon rise just after sunset. Only 12 people have walked on the Moon, and none since 1972. Many of us have never enjoyed the experience of even watching it on live TV. If plans succeed to return by 2020, the gap will be nearly a half century.

You have 2 more days to bid on eBay item #3300933083739, L. Gordon Cooper's Mercury flight helmet. On May 15-16, 1963 Cooper and this helmet orbited Earth 22 times, the last American to orbit alone. The owner originally bought it at a low price, when it was thought to be Cooper's training helmet. There are bargains to be found on eBay! According to the smiling Richard Branson in TIME, for a lesser amount Virgin Galactic will take you into Space for real.

The Mercury spacesuit was actually the US Navy's Mark V high-altitude pressure suit, developed by B. F. Goodrich for fighter aircraft. Many modifications were made during the Mercury program. The suits were never called to protect their wearers from Space, since no Mercury spacecraft lost pressure during flight. The suit nearly sank Gus Grissom, who was forced to exit from his spacecraft into the Pacific. The silver-suited Mercury astronaut was immortalised in television and movies from THE RIGHT STUFF to THE ASTRONAUT FARMER, our version of the knight in shining armour.

Thank you Brickmuppet, for enjoying the Saturn posts. This blog will try to spotlight both human and robotic Space exploration. Goals of science should be to benefit humans and life on Earth. Presently I spend the day working on a technology that even Sir Richard hasn't imagined yet. It will make human spaceflight safer, more comfortable and far more affordable. There is room in Space for both humans and droids.

We are all very optimistic about the rest of the 21st century. It is very exciting to be involved with spaceflight.

Funny you mention the lunar eclipse - I would have seen it if I had not been in Mexico!
Actually, what happened to me was quite nice and unexpected. I had come to know about the eclipse about a month ago, and then had forgotten about it, because of the scorn of knowing I would be missing a great show, traveling to the wrong side of the globe.
Then, no more thoughts about it. Until I drive back home from Tulum, with groceries in my trunk, and I see a faint crescent low in the evening sky. A crescent ? Wasn't it full moon just yesterday or so ? Hmmm... It takes me two seconds to realize I was glimpsing at the final phase of the eclipse, when the totality ends and more and more of the lunar disk appears bright, although still partially eclipsed by the earth's shadow.
Once I realize it, I drive like hell through the bumpy road home, and get my kids out to see the show.

It was not the best eclipse I saw, but seeing the moon rise from the caribbean, from our nice beach in front of home, was something.

A family from Nalgonda district in Andhra Pradesh and settled in Porur, Chennai, is going from place to place selling helmets. The members of the family display the headgear march madness in prominent locations in places where there is a popular demand for helmets for two-wheeler riders. They say their business has picked up after helmet wearing was made mandatory in Chennai.
