Sol 113 : The Dark Months

I’m not going to lie and say being out here for the holidays is not difficult. Its lonely and cold, with mornings that always seem to begin with the same question; Why am I here again? I didn’t ask myself that question the first month I was here, or the second. Similarly, I find myself waking up a little bit later, hitting the snooze button another time each morning, compressing my morning routine to compensate. I cant stay up late working on math, as I tend to get more impatient in the evening. I’ve been adjusting my schedule and trying different schemes of time management, trying to ping the right time of day for me to do homework effectively. I have a hypothesis that my body and its different organs are more or less efficient at different times of day. Maybe there is a best time of day to get the most out of my gym time, and a block between meals that my brain is running at peak. It will be interesting to see the results.

Sol -11 : Mars One

Did you hear that seductive and silky British voice tell you the same thing it told me? 2023! That sure is ambitious, dangerous, and difficult. It also is beautiful, inspiring, thought-provoking. Could we do this?

I would go, there is no doubt in my mind, and this fits Elon Musk, CEO of SpaceX’s time frame too. Are we really considering this, this crazy wonderful dream? My mind is too blown right now to even give a really good write up of this company and its potentials and pitfalls. I’ll have to sleep on this and do some more research. I have to ask you though, wouldn’t it be beautiful if this was the beginning, if we could really say that humanity was now pushing for the stars, that it is happening in our life time and that we could participate in it?

What if ten years from now, the first Mars colonists were leaving earth to make a home on the red world? Don’t you want to be a member of a species capable of achieving that?

Perpetually in Awe. Todd.
