Longing for Gravity
It’s weird when you look at it, I mean not the planet Mars, but at the glorious past, and the golden eras of the Cosmos conquest, in the 60ies. Man endeavored to go farther and beyond the nearest space, since the launch of Sputnik, the first object to the extraterrestrial space, to contend, and strive in rivality between nations for first place to get there, and put one’s own banner, and finally his dream is still in the sky out there, after its has been for the longest in the books_ From Earth to the Moon Jules Verne. It’s like entering The Hall of Fame, in baseball at the same epoch, when the kid scored a home run, the TV commentator said his famous quote “It’s still in the sky while it’s already in the books.” After turning around the bushes, indefinitely so to speak, for generations and numerous tentative approaches to concretely make Man dream comes true. Since the Greek mythology, Man had overcome his fears and subdued the elements of Dame Nature, he saddled the wind, after Moult imaginary schemes, from growing wings like, the dream of Icarius to fly, to Leonardo Davinci wooden machine, the boloon Montgolfiere borders, Bleriot, Lindbergh, and so many dramatic failures, and glorious success, than finally Man put his feet on the face of the Moon, Apollo like a dot on an I; a great pace for man and a small on for Humanity. then suddenly, a blackout era, with its successive failures and drama, to became fade, a banal business of repairs and maintenance, like going to fix the Flat-tires to the gas station next door. The charm is broken,like a withred reed that makes a charming Pan Flute, ago.
Getting to the point, it’s like putting a dot on an i, that is Mars is so close to The Earth,to see that it could be what Earth will be looking like, if we continue our blind reach for the stars, and forgetting behind to protect the environment, and by the time, The Blue Planet, it’s sources of water, lakes, river and seas tarried it’s green green grass of home withred, because it’s the only home for Man, elsewhere is already Arid and not suitable for his living. With the race between superpowers to control the sources of fossil fuels, the overuse of populating industries , our culture of society of over undulging consumers is modeling the globalization of economic systems, the immergening new rich nations with burgeoning prosperity besides the disparities between nations of different systems of extreme poverty of populations around the world, that are results what are causing irreversibles patterns of the global warming that leads to desertification, and droughts.
This is not a pleading for to save the planet, or a compain for some green so-called.org, but the reasonable thinking about what we will leave as a heritage, not for descending heirs in the future generations, but just right now, for our kids. In the present tense.
