Bradbury on Mars

I was absolutely delighted to learn the scientists & engineers who put Mars Curiosity down, named that stretch of Martian dirt for Ray Bradbury.

I think he would have appreciated it.

I know I do…

Bradbury dreamed something, a human dream.

An ancient dream.

God, I love NASA and the human dream that drives us toward the planets

and the stars…

Happy birthday, Ray!
