being a sci-fi geek this is a momentus year. Its the year the Force Awakens..
*cue pause for light saber sound effects* don’t try and deny it, if you’re still reading, that’s what you did..
I pretty much could fill the internet with reasons why I love sci-fi, but even better than sci-fi and more amazing than sci-fact (which too quickly becomes sci-whatevs…) is that moment when we’re on the cusp, that anticipatory rush of the almost. The first tentative steps towards the realisation of dreams.
Spaceport America, Branson’s grand legacy, is the living embodiment of that almost. And the stories, the possibilities of those first years of space occupation, exploration and exploitation, are mostly probably going to be horrors.. but still fun.. 😀
