Every once in a while I find it interesting to look back at all of the sci-fi starships that I have observed for the last 50+ years. Now that space technology in the United States is increasingly transferred to the private sector for development, recently the US made a small extraordinary funding grant to begin preliminary research in a Interstellar Srarship that is is expected to take 100 years to develop – the 100 Year Starship program. Here is a list of government agencies worldwide that are engaged in activities related to outer space and space exploration (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
A celebration of pilots, captains, engineers, crew members, and the spacecraft they love to fly. (And race, and crash, and fix, and play in, and fight in, and…) Premiered at Vividcon 2012. Music by Nicki Minaj.
