X is For (Xcor)

This week, I was fortunate enough to attend the Space Craft Technology Expo at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

I went on a Press pass because I have a column on Nanotechnology now (see the right side of my page, there’s a link.) My column is writing poetry. XCOR had an interesting of their suborbital spacecraft. I want one. But you can buy a ride into orbit. Check out their website. It’s amazing that you can get into space now, and not be a superman astronaut. The spacecraft can be sued for payloads and experiments too, not just space travel. Seriously, check out their website, if you ever wanted to go into space, you can save up and go now!

haiku and senryu about annoyances

waves pound on beaches
bad weather annoyances
powerful tycoons

trouble multiplies
filthy land based pollution
human garbage piles

dirty Chinese air
greenhouse emissions travel
across Pacific

screaming sick infants
cats fighting in the allies
dogs looking for fights

unhealthy disdain
pernicious urban status
no emission laws
