Space Calendar Re-Launch Aims for Weekly
Publication through 2076:
Hawaii 15 October Earthquake Ends Nearly 24 Years of Space Calendar Official
Continuous Weekly Publication, Jolts Space Age Publishing Company into Accelerated
Space Calendar, through Space
Age Publishing Company (SPC) Offices in California, Hawaii, on the
Moon, and / or Beyond, is expected to continue observation, communication,
support and calendaring of international, national and individual space
/ lunar / planetary / astro activities, enterprises and next week's
upcoming launches, meetings and events.
Continuous weekly publication
since 1983 has been a significant and satisfying accomplishment for
many Space Age Editors dedicated to human expansion into the cosmos
and transcendence to a multi-planet species. Aiming for the Moon
every day is empowering and will continue with Lunar Enterprise Daily,
reconfigured for enhanced utility and increased value.
The SPC-initiated International
Lunar Observatory (ILO), primarily an advanced galactic sensor for
astrophysical data, also will enable commercial communications, thru
the LE Daily and related broadcast opportunities. A toehold for lunar
base build-out, the ILO is to be a global / inter-global facility,
Hawaii-connected, with participation from China, India, Crescent
Moon Countries (each with about 20% of the world's people) as well
as ISS partner nations.
The October 15 early morning
earthquakes, which damaged the then-unstaffed SPC Hawaii Office in
Kamuela with falling ceilings and light fixtures and crashing computers
indeed, would themselves not likely have terminated weekly publication.
This Editor was traveling from the SPC California Office in Palo
Alto to San Francisco Airport for a week across the USA in Kansas
and New York when the biggest quake occurred.
Ad Astra Per Aspera, the
Kansas State motto and my mission, shaped attitude and response as
I continued Space Age travels and considered Hawaii mid-course corrections
and restoration of office / work-space / vehicle.
Now re-launching, Space
Calendar official continuous weekly publication through 2076 will
mark 100 years for this dedicated Space Age enterprise -- on July
5, the first day of the USA's 4th century. Realities for SPC the
next 70 years, though far from certain, can be projected through
Space Age experience, goals and perspective of 30 years since 1976
dome of SPC's 3rd office, within sight of Lake Armstrong, will need
replacing after decades of lunar surface exposure. Attracted by free
space, asteroids, Mars, the Jupiter / Saturn systems, and the stars
beyond, Space Age foresees its robotic "bureaus" throughout
our star system, its sensors interacting with the Galaxy's billions
of stars and worlds. Free from and transcending decades of flat-earth,
dead-end retreat and reaction, humanity's 21st century space revolutions
and trillion dollar stellar enterprises will introduce future generations,
and Space Age Editors, to the cities of the Universe.
