This is a recreation of my very first web page, from the soon-to-be-defunct GeoCities, where it was known as http://www.geocities.com/capecanaveral/4962/.

I've pretty much retained everything as it was when I last touched it, sometime in 1997. I did remove the still-active email addresses of a couple of friends, and made sure that all of the links within the web site used relative addressing, rather than the full URL.

That said, don't expect any links to work. Images may have vanished. Email links that do exist are defunct. There aren't any wonderful CSS effects, CSS wasn't invented yet. And no one had heard of HTML validation, either.

If you want to talk to me about this page, go back to my current home page and see what my current email address is.

And now, a little bit of history:

New News

I know, it's been a long time since I've updated this page. I hope to get a chance to work on it again shortly. For now, see my
Index of Home Pages for other places I work on the Web.

Those of us "of a certain age" can remember the excitement the space program, even before the space program started. This included not only the movie "Destination Moon", Buck Rodgers, the TV show "Men Into Space", and other items of popular culture, but also books particularly those by Willy Ley and those illustrated by Chelsey Bonesell. The Dreams of Space page takes you back to those thrilling days of yesteryear...
In addition to the moon, the Earth has an Mother Goose, the War of 1812, and the sex life of plants. It's all in the current edition of Horizon in the Washington Post.

There may be Ice In Space (see below), but is there really Ice On the Moon? Maybe be not, according to scientists who made a detailed radar survey.
NASA has a Mars Atlas Home Page. Go to this page, click on the map, and you get a Viking Orbiter picture of Mars. You can look for the face, but it might not be what you expect. Doubtless a government conspiracy. You can also access a whole set of Planetary Image Finders.
Are gigantic cosmic snowballs pelting the earth's atmosphere? If so, it challenges long-held assumptions about how Earth and the solar system evolved. In fact, most of Earth's water might come from comets.
Was there something that was here, but isn't anymore? It may be filed under Old News.
