    for the first time in my life, i saw the milky way's dense cloud of stars stretching across the night sky. while on vacation in california, we stayed in twain harte, up in the hills, and the sky was not tainted by the city lights that i've grown up with. at first glance i thought i was seeing a cloud stretching through the sky, but upon closer inspection, i realized that it was the milky way. for someone who's never seen it before, it was a very awe inspiring sight. things of this sort used to hold more importance in my life, and i'd forgotten about the beauty that can be found in the night sky.

    haha...no shit.

    last months Discover had this article about how china is hoping to send a human into space by 2005. to put this in perspective, the same issue of Discover had an article about how theres teams of guys from the US that are competing to be the first independently funded people in space. crazy shit....
