8-Trck Engineer Ep.05, The Coming of Age

I've created this 8-Trck Engineer as if I was creating the soundtrack of my float and fly through space. Past stars and planets, through gas clouds and planet rings. This is dedicated to the progress we Humans are making in becoming a Space-faring species. Press play then read. Then if you love space honk your horn...or just leave a comment

There's this great sense of wonder going on with all the action between Humans and Space. There's always been action, I bet, but not in the mainstream media. First there's the new Phoenix Space probe and it's Mars landing. Then there's the new amazing(!) NASA Spitzer Space Telescope galaxy panorama. And as I type this, I'm watching Discovery Channel's "When We Left Earth" series. 

If you were one of those neo-nature geeks that was glued to Discovery Channel every Sunday for "Planet Earth" then your probably one of these neo-space lovers excited about this new series. from NASA: When We Left Earth is the story of mankind’s greatest adventure, leaving the earth and living in space. For the first time this series has digitally re-mastered the original film and audio recordings from NASA’s vault, including and all the key on-board footage filmed by the astronauts themselves. For DC's series trailer click here.
If you haven't seen NASA's Spitzer's pics then eventually you will. "This is the highest-resolution, largest, most sensitive infrared picture ever taken of our Milky Way," said Sean Carey of NASA's Spitzer Science Center. From Because Earth sits inside our dusty, flat, disk-shaped Milky Way, we have an edge-on view of our galactic home. We see the Milky Way as a blurry, narrow band of light that stretches almost completely across the sky. With Spitzer's dust-piercing infrared eyes, astronomers peered 60,000 light-years away into this fuzzy band, called the galactic plane, and saw all the way to the other side of the galaxy.
