Moon Watching from the Knolls
20 April 2007
Have you seen the beautiful moon views from your deck recently? If so, prepare for some discussions of a native son's historical contributions to the world and his hopes for more moon connections for us in the future.
Harrison "Jack" Schmitt, who was born in Santa Rosa, NM, was a member of the Apollo 17 Moon Flight in December 1972. He has been a resident of Albuquerque since 1982. At the present time he is a a part of the NASA Advisory Council which has plans to return to the moon before 2020.
Schmitt, a former U. S. Senator from NM, knows the pitfalls of government, but hopes that there will be a commercial incentive to explore the moon once again. Helium-3 is not found in great quantities on the earth, but it is abundant on the moon. It is within the realm of the possible to use this moon resource to economically power the earth.
Add to your Knolls News Knowledge after you read Schmitt's book, Return to the Moon.

McAfee Starts New Trekkie Trend
4 April 2007
John McAfee, known for his development of anti-virus software to protect internet surfers from on-line hackers, is now enjoying a different sport called aerotrekking.
Aerotrekking is the adventure of flying lightweight aircraft into unknown and unexplored areas of the world to have a bird's eye view of the terrain.
Currently, he is organizing the placement of airstrip hubs across Arizona and NM. These hubs will become bases for light aircraft refueling between exploration adventures. The craft can travel from 30 mph to 95 mph. The cost of this speed, however, is from $45,000-$100,000. Training runs around $7500. It takes about three weeks to get your license.

If this is beyond your budget at this time, you may want to start your program with paper airplanes using your 2007 one-a-day calendar.
