This section is a repository of articles, and links designed to address the Science and Technology of today, as well as looking forward to what the technology of the future might do for us.
Over the years it became clear to me that some people from my generation were absent from school the day they taught science. That was probably the only day that I actually payed attention, so I might be able to shed some light on the rapidly unfolding technology. It is happening at a pace that challenges all of us to keep pace. It is my goal to present what I believe are the significant advancements in science, and technology. I will focus on technology ranging from computer based technology, to the quest for the stars, and even some simple, but often overlooked advancements.
Today, it is understood that we will eventually go to the stars. From my perspective, we are behind with that lofty goal. My personal concern is that I won’t live to see it happen. Of course, before we go dashing across the galaxy, we must first get to Mars, and maybe even revisit the moon. Those are both ambitious goals, but very necessary for human kind. According to the people working toward that end, trips to Mars could happen within the next 10 years. Trips to the moon will likely happen even sooner. I want to see it happen in my lifetime, but if I don’t live to see it, I will still follow the milestones as they occur. There are also scientific advancements that are much more earth-centric, and I will address them as well.
Understanding how technology affects us is very important, because new computer controlled devices are appearing at a very rapid rate. Personal computers, smart phones, virtual reality, and what are called intelligent appliances, referred to as The Internet of Things, are meant enhance our lives. However, it is NOT always good news. If we are to use emerging technology to our benefit, we must understand it, so I will do my best to explain the good, the bad, and the ugly of what is coming to our brave new world.
