You have entered the galaxial territory of Two Worlds. Welcome.
Retooling efforts are constantly underway. Liberal offerings can be found for your perusal throughout Two Worlds.
A common question for those new to this part of the cosmos: What is Two Worlds? It is one website comprised of two worlds: “My World” - a galaxial assemblage of personal influences and ephemera; and “the Other World” - a summation of my communications work and skills.
So come on in. There is room for everybody. If you looking for a creative, effective communications professional right now, jettison to the Other World to view a selection of my work. Transmit your thoughts via the methods found at page bottom.
Before exploring Two Worlds, you will find a few nuggets of information below on the amazing people, missions and technologies dedicated to space exploration. Isn't life, GREAT?!
Whether it is NASA or SpaceX, I get overwhelmed with a sense of feeling great to be alive when looking at mission photos or reading background on the people who have shaped history; Feel awestruck and inspired by the ambition, commitment and scientific achievement.
When NASA’s Ingenuity Mars Helicopter took to the Martian skies on its third flight on April 25, the agency’s Perseverance rover was there to capture the historic moment. Now NASA engineers have rendered the flight in 3D, lending dramatic depth to the flight as the helicopter ascends, hovers, then zooms laterally off-screen before returning for a pinpoint landing. Seeing the sequence is a bit like standing on the Martian surface next to Perseverance and watching the flight firsthand.
Vandi Verma, an engineer who now works with NASA’s Perseverance Mars rover, is seen here working as a driver for the Curiosity rover. The special 3D glasses she’s wearing are still used by rover drivers to easily detect changes in terrain that the rover may need to avoid.
A key objective for Perseverance’s mission on Mars is astrobiology, including the search for signs of ancient microbial life. The rover will characterize the planet’s geology and past climate, pave the way for human exploration of the Red Planet, and be the first mission to collect and cache Martian rock and regolith (broken rock and dust).
Subsequent NASA missions, in cooperation with ESA (European Space Agency), would send spacecraft to Mars to collect these sealed samples from the surface and return them to Earth for in-depth analysis.
The Mars 2020 Perseverance mission is part of NASA’s Moon to Mars exploration approach, which includes Artemis missions to the Moon that will help prepare for human exploration of the Red Planet.
JPL, which is managed for NASA by Caltech in Pasadena, California, built and manages operations of the Perseverance rover.

(September 5, 1983) Astronaut Guion S. Bluford, STS-8 mission specialist, assists Dr. William E. Thornton (out of frame) with a medical test that requires use of the treadmill exercising device designed for spaceflight by the STS-8 medical doctor. Bluford was the first African-American astronaut, flying into orbit on the Space Shuttle Challenger on August 30, 1983.

Pink Medicine dovetails perfectly with my conception of
traveling through the cosmos. It was created by, Bearson,
a spooky talented DJ from Norway.
The song was barely audible when it first caught my ear amidst the morning bustle of a coffee shop.
That's what I'm talkin' 'bout!
Some singers I love: Dean Martin, Robert Gordon, Robin Zander, Felix Cavaliere, Lowell George, Nat King Cole, Lou Gramm.
If sound could travel through space, and I had to pick one singer whose voice would be sent out into the boundless dark searching for a connection, it would be Tom Jones. The clarity, passion and power of Jones would persuade others conscious entities that humanity means what we say and we come from a good place. Seriously though, those pipes at full throttle!!
