Astronauts Return To Earth – Do You Think Space Travel Is Cool?

Astronauts return to Earth! That’s right, folks, NASA astronaut Scott Kelly has touched down on terra firma, along with his fellow space travelers, after spending almost a full year on the International Space Station.

The above paragraph should be read in an old-timey newsreel type of voice. That’s how I heard it when I was writing it.

Mostly, as I’ve been saying — SPACE TRAVEL! It’s awesome.

Major Tom (OK, commander Scott Kelly) is back but NASA is apparently still working on getting to Mars. (See related links below.)

Mars. So cool.

Is anyone else excited about this? I mean obviously some people are. But are any of you folks? DaddyTips readers? Friends of DaddyTips readers? People who stumbled across this site from a search engine? Do you think space travel is cool?

When you hear “astronauts return to Earth” do you feel a little flutter in your gut? Or is it just another tidbit of news that flits by your eyes like so many digital space junk?

(Heh heh. Space junk. Sorry.)

For me, I’m happy to hear about space exploration and that it’s getting news coverage. That means that at least I’m not the only one still dreaming of hopping a flight to Mars.
